A Lincoln’s Inn audience heard a panel of speakers, chaired by Unity’s Roger Billins, discuss issues relevant to the conference topic of access to justice. Vanessa Brady, founder of The Society of British and International Design, speak passionately about the problems that entrepreneurs and creatives face in enforcing their legal rights whether it be getting paid by clients for a job well done or protecting intellectual property rights. Mark Watson-Gandy, barrister, of 3 Stone Buildings, explained the changes to legislation as the country comes of Covid restrictions. Possible solutions were offered by Neil Purslow, CEO of Therium, major UK and international litigation funders and by Anthony Trace Q.C, head of Unity’s mediation practice.

The conference ended with a lively discussion between the audience and the panel. We were pleased to have a video and audio recording of the conference, which can be accessed through the attached link

Roger Billins said:

“ We are very pleased to have held our first conference on this important topic and are privileged to have had such a stat line up of speakers. It was great that the conference prompted such a lively debate. Unity will now be building on this success, exploring new ways of opening the door to the legal market for clients and along with our colleagues in Genesis, lobbying government to provide better funding for the justice system”.
