404 Wyman Street
Due to inclement weather, this seminar has been postponed. Please check back for a new date.
Complimentary for Guests of Arnold & Porter
February 5, 2014, Waltham, MA 8:00 a.m. EST
If you are a US-based HR professional or in-house lawyer responsible
for handling employment issues that arise in your company's UK
operations, this workshop is for you! Henry Clinton-Davis, Head of the
UK/EU Employment Law team at international law firm Arnold & Porter
LLP, will be covering a wide range of employment law issues you are
likely to encounter in practice and which your employer will expect you
to know about. The aim is not to make you an expert, but to give you an
essential overview so that you can spot and pre-empt problems and avoid
the traps many US companies encounter when doing business in the UK.
Henry has been advising US companies on European employment issues for
much of his career. Many of his clients are technology, life science,
and pharma-focused companies located in or around Boston.
If you have colleagues within your own company or in other companies
who you think may find the seminar of interest, please pass this
invitation to them. RSVP below to ensure a place as space is limited.
