Welcome

I now provide all my services remotely: I am trained in Zoom (my preferred platform) and am happy to have “meetings” that way, or I can provide webinar versions of all my training courses and also have experience in conducting remote mediations, so there is no interruption to service. In fact, a good thing just got better!

If you want to see an example of me in action – I am hosting a “mini-webinar” in a series I call “Law B4 Lunch”. The idea is that we are all busy these days, and attending webinars is tiring, so why not reduce things to the essentials? I look at a single point, deal with it in detail for 20 minutes (max) and then we go for lunch. On 30 June 2020 at 1230 (London UK time), I am looking at contractual indemnities – they are everywhere in contracts these days, but what exactly do common phrases like “save and hold harmless” actually mean?
