In this seminar, the speakers addressed the transition between the two jurisdictions and the implications that this has for your clients in terms of procedure and outcomes.
Pump Court Chambers has extensive experience and expertise in both jurisdictions and the seminar highlighted the difficult issues raised by this area of law.
