An Excellent Turner Lecture this year
Thanks to all who attended the excellent Turner Lecture at the Law Society in London on Friday 25 October 2013. I’m so pleased that East of England Branch co-sponsored the event and that Carol Baker, Ruth Adesipe and Lyn Commons from the Branch Committee were able to be there with me. A full house in the Council Chamber of the Law Society in Chancery Lane was treated to a lively debate on the Jackson Reforms to litigation costs and funding, and the impact on businesses of the new Late Payment Regulations. Our distinguished panel of Peter Susman of Hendersons Chambers, Queens Council and Court Judge; Victoria Herd FICM, Deloittes Credit Manager; Mike Watson MICM, Financial Consultant (ABFA); and Barrister Nazeer Chowdhury of Hendersons Chambers, gave their views, insight, interpretations and anecdotes, and they answered the many questions from the audience – and from each other. ICM President Registrar Stephen Baister chaired superbly as ever. As well as to our panel members, particular thanks go to the event organiser Richard Seadon, the Vice Chairman of ICM Kent Branch, and to ICM Vice Chairman Bryony Pettifor. Thanks are also due to the generosity of ABFA (Asset Based Finance Association) and T.G.Baynes for supporting the evening.
