Business Beyond Covid-19: 15.00pm (UK) Session


On 25 January 2021 join business and legal leaders from a real rainbow of united nations, including Australia, Brazil, India, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, the UK and USA, to conclude the 2020-21 Business Beyond Covid-19 online event series.

Over the past year, The Legal 500 joined with The Blended Capital Group to host a dynamic debate and exploration of how business in different countries across the world has mitigated the seemingly never-ending uncertainty and risks of the Global Pandemic. Now, in our closing session before offering recommendations to the UN World Investment Forum we are exploring how business worldwide is preparing for a vaccine-driven return to a new form of reality, hopefully, during an improving 2021.

Leading legal minds

The online event series was kicked off by Judge Professor Mervyn King of South Africa and Professor Paul Q. Watchman, from the UK where he was a former Senior Partner at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. Both Professors have kindly supported the on-line series from the start and will help deliver final recommendations to a forthcoming on-line event supporting the UN global investment event. You will be advised of the UN event date/time shortly.

Respecting time zones ranging from Tokyo to San Francisco we will convene the event twice during the day at 8.00am (UK) and then again at 3.00pm (UK).
