Each of our video/pod­cast series “At centre stage” presents themed con­tent ded­ic­ated to pro­fes­sion­als, leg­al ad­visors op­er­at­ing in a se­lec­ted sec­tor, and all stake­hold­ers who need to un­der­stand the forces driv­ing that sec­tor – es­pe­cially emer­ging sec­tors. In the fast-chan­ging eco­nomy the best way to un­der­stand where com­pan­ies are headed is to talk with the com­pan­ies them­selves. We will re­veal the obstacles they face, how they en­vis­age the fu­ture of their in­dustry, and how they avoid any leg­al traps they might en­counter while pur­su­ing their busi­ness goals.So, from start-ups to big mar­ket play­ers, we put com­pan­ies “at centre stage” – and spice up the mix by hav­ing a CMS leg­al pro­fes­sion­al join them for a half-hour mod­er­ated dis­cus­sion. We will dig deep in­to the spe­cif­ics of all fu­ture-fa­cing sec­tors.
