The future of consumer law and alternative dispute resolution in the UK

Senior associate Chris Haan will be speaking at this event run by the Westminster Business Forum. The discussion is timed to consider policy priorities for consumer protection and enforcement mechanisms following the passage of the Consumer Rights Act which introduced new legal frameworks for selling goods, services and digital content. Sessions will also focus on the future of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) for consumers, looking in particular at the future of requirements for businesses that were established under the recent EU Directive on ADR, as well as the future use of the EU Commission’s newly created online dispute resolution platform. Delegates at this seminar will assess the impact of ongoing changes to the framework for consumer rights and dispute resolution in the UK.

Date: Wednesday 14th September 2016
Time: 8.30am - 1pm
Location:  The Caledonian Club, 9 Halkin Street, London, SW1X 7DR
