With increasing talk about when the country will come out of lockdown, Brewin Dolphin Wealth Management joined Legal News to explore what the economic data is showing to help lawyers and their clients plan for the future.

Our event on the 14th May 2020, hosted alongside specialists from Brewin Dolphin Wealth Management, provided exclusive insight into what current available economic data suggests and the what the climate could look like in a few months’ time, and this time next year.

The four wealth management and investment specialists from Brewin Dolphin gave a valuable overview of what the data means in terms of potential risks, opportunities for businesses and the implications for law firms’ clients in private client and family law sectors. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session – a lively discussion between participating lawyers and the speakers.
