It’s never been more important to share ideas and encourage discussions. While physical events might not be possible for now, getting together as a community and sharing advice can still be achieved.

With 10+ sessions running over 3 days as well as some exciting pre and post-event sessions curated for the FS community, The Lawyer’s In-house Financial Services virtual event will bring together 200+ in-house legal counsel and compliance professionals from across the financial services sector to discuss, benchmark and exchange ideas.

Our series of exciting content kicks off on the 2nd June at 11:00am with a 45-minute virtual roundtable on Conducting FS at a distance – does it represent an opportunity?

Our expert speakers, joined by a small number of in-house lawyers, will tackle the following questions in a lively and interactive discussion:

  • Remote customer engagement – is it compelling (or is it simply a price-based commodity)?
  • Concluding agreements at a distance – what are the perceived (and actual) barriers?
  • What is to stop people simply moving around – can customers be retained at a distance?
