Bird & Bird Employment Seminar: 'A new era - of cooperation or strife?'

24 June 2010

Bird & Bird's Employment Team is delighted to invite you to a seminiar entitled 'A new era - of cooperation or strife?' on Thursday 24 June 2010 from 4.00pm.

All three partners in the Bird & Bird Employment Team will participate in this year's seminar.  They have each selected an area of practice in which, in their view, there will be heightened activity as a result of the change in Government and economic climate.

We hope you can join us.
