I am enjoying my YouTube channel and slowly starting to get stuff uploaded. I just uploaded a brief webinar on the subject of Soteria (CISGIL) v IBM and you can find it on YouTube here.
“Stephens on Contractual Indemnities” is now available: published in 2021 by Law Brief Publishing and available on Amazon it is already getting a good deal of attention. There is nothing on the market which explains to lawyers in such a clear way exactly what an indemnity is (and is not) and this book is the first to set out the practice points for those drafting or litigating them. You can get the training course here.
I now provide all my services remotely: I am trained in Zoom (my preferred platform) and am happy to have “meetings” that way or using other platforms, or I can provide webinar versions of all my training courses and also have considerable experience in conducting remote mediations, so there is no interruption to service. In fact, a good thing just got better!
