Scotland’s leading employment law advisers Burness Paull LLP and Pinsent Masons LLP combine their resources to deliver the must-attend event for busy HR professionals and SME business owners.

With a dynamic programme of presentations, industry updates and guest speakers, the high profile Annual Employment Law Conference equips delegates with the essential information, know-how and skills to deal with the demands of 21st century employment law and personnel management in the company of fellow professionals.

Since the conference’s inception in 2007 it has grown significantly both in reputation and size and is now the largest event of its kind in North-east Scotland.

The 2021 programme will return as an in-person conference and see expert speakers provide updates and insights on a range of topical issues. Keynote speaker Caspar Glyn QC, of Cloisters Chambers, is one of the top 10 highly most regarded employment silks. Described as a “scintillatingly good QC with a razor sharp brain”, an “intellectual heavyweight” and “fiendishly brilliant” – whatever your stance, there is no doubt he has been at the forefront of employment status, holiday pay, working time and minimum wage cases in recent years, carrying a busy caseload across the UK from employment tribunals to the Supreme Court.

Further details to follow.

A comprehensive delegate pack including detailed notes is also provided.
