The Discount Rate: Whatever Next?

Journey with us as we enter the mind of the Lord Chancellor and ask: What next? Why me? And was it something I said?

This round table discussion, aimed at solicitors managing large loss and catastrophic claims, will consider the real issues facing our lay clients in times of great uncertainty and change.

Chaired by Robert Weir QC, with contributions from Robert Hunter and our other top silks and leading juniors, the discussion will be a light-hearted look at some serious issues including:

(i) Can Roberts v Johnstone survive?
(ii) How might the rate be set in future?
(iii) Would primary legislation be required for a move away from index-linked gilts?
(iv) Who needs PPOs?

This seminar will take place at our offices on Wednesday 22 March 2017. Registration is from 5.30pm with the seminar commencing at 6.00pm, followed by drinks and informal discussion at 7.00pm.

To register your interest, please email Lorna Claridge, Marketing Assistant.

Please note: This seminar is offered at no cost but spaces are limited.
