The UK Government considers that the current legislation around consumer rights is out of date, confusing and incomplete.

The new Consumer Rights Act is intended to rectify this by consolidating eight current pieces of legislation into one act and introduce new protection for consumers.

The act is due to come into force on 1 October 2015 and, in particular, will replace and supplement current business to consumer legislation in respect of the sale of goods, the supply of goods and services and unfair contract terms.

Two members of our specialist commercial team, Michael Winder and Eleanor Markey, will be holding a free seminar to update you on the changes brought in by the new legislation and what you should be doing to comply with the new law.  

In the seminars Michael and Eleanor will discuss:

  • The key changes to the existing law re. goods and services
  • The new provisions regarding digital content
  • How to remain compliant with the new consumer laws and regulations
  • The rights and remedies available to consumers 

Who should attend?

Individuals working in a consumer facing business (i.e. supplying goods or services to the general public).

Since the publication of GP Bullhound's report last year, technology companies worth more than a billion dollars, or Unicorns, have received unprecedented attention from the media and the tech community. Many commentators were surprised that 30 European Unicorns had been grown.

There are now 40 companies in the prestigious list, as described in GP Bullhound's latest report “European Unicorns – Do They Have Legs?”, recently featured in Financial Times, Newsweek and Tech.eu.

This year GP Bullhound assess if Europe’s ecosystem can continue to create billion dollar “home runs” and the common key attributes of the cohort of European unicorns founded from 2000 onwards.

Please join GP Bullhound in the discussion as they present their latest report “European Unicorns - Do They Have Legs?” in Liverpool, sponsored by Brabners.
