Our team of experienced presenters, including our in-house lawyers, offer seminars, workshops or lectures on a range of topics and for any size of audience.

We can also create bespoke workshops on topics as required.

Those all carry CPD ethical points accredited through SAMA.

Unless stated otherwise all talks are 60 minutes including questions and answers, although active and passionate audience participation often extends the duration well beyond that.
