Employment Breakfast Seminar

Developing a global presence.

As many businesses look to benefit from the opportunities that expansion abroad can have, an understanding of how this can be achieved is crucial.

Join us at this informative seminar where we will review some of the key employment and commercial issues to consider when developing a global presence.

Senior International Trade Advisers from UKTI will outline the support that they can provide to local businesses and the team from Square One Law will look at:

  • Establishing a presence abroad
  • International commercial issues
  • Global employment considerations
