Private equity lawyers hold inaugural conference

The Private Equity Lawyers Forum, an organisation formed in May 2003 for in-house lawyers within the sector, is to hold its first conference on Friday 2 April 2004. It is believed to be the first instance of in-house lawyers grouping together on an industry basis to specify their own training needs. The forum has the support of the British Venture Capital Association and the Law Society’s commerce and industry group. For more information, contact Claire Wilkinson at
