Seminars

Members of One Essex Court regularly provide talks, presentations and seminars on a wide range of topical issues affecting the many sectors in which we provide expertise.

Individual members are available to attend at solicitor/client premises, for either internal department based presentations, or at larger client orientated functions.  Talks and seminars can be tailored to meet any specific needs and we are also able to hold presentations here at One Essex Court.
