Webinar from ACE Emerging Professionals will explore impact of EU exit on construction industry

On Thursday 20 January 2022, ACE’s group for emerging professionals will explore the effects of Brexit on the construction industry, in a special webinar co-hosted by Ellie Eastwood and Harry Coates of legal experts Beale & Co. 
With many questions remaining surrounding the true impact of Brexit on our industry, this webinar will explore how we have been affected to date, with a view on the challenges and potential opportunities for our sector which lie in the 12 months ahead.

Whether supply chains, skills and labour, quality standards, dispute resolution or public procurement, our ways of working have already been disrupted. This webinar will explore how we can be best prepared for future changes to our ways of working brought about by our exit from the EU.

Alongside our hosts, we will also welcome a number of industry experts. Clare Marshall is founder of 2MPy, a business consultancy providing specialist independent advice to organisations looking to enrich their business with strategic guidance and support. Anna Hoffman is a barrister at 4 Pump Court and has experience in a range of commercial and regulatory matters with a particular focus on shipping, technology and data protection, class actions, financial services and insurance, as well as international arbitration.

Finally, the panel will be joined by Paul Henty, partner at Beale & Co. Paul advises on a wide range of regulatory matters as well as general corporate and commercial law and he has supported a number of clients with legal issues arising from Brexit, as well as issues such as privacy and data protection. 

Places for this webinar, organised by ACE’s Emerging Professionals, are free to anyone working in the industry, no matter their seniority. To help inform the debate, we would be grateful if attendees could complete this survey in advance of the online event.
