Conference Description:

Butterworths is pleased to announce that the Unfair Commercial Practices and Consumer Protection conference will be held in Central London on Wednesday23 May 2012 (5.75 CPD hours).

Enforcement of the Unfair Commercial Practices regulation is starting to bite. As enforcers get to grips with the new regulations, litigation is intensifying.

Packed with presentations from industry, local and national enforcers and the legal experts involved in current litigation, the Unfair Commercial Practices and Consumer Protection conference will cover everything delegates need to know about how to ensure compliance.

Chaired by Iain MacDonald of Gough Square Chambers, our unparalleled speaker panel will offer practical advice. Attending this highly topical event will enable participants to:
• Examine the impact of the most recent cases resulting from an enforcement crackdown
• Hear direct from the OFT and former Trading Standards officers on national and local enforcement priorities and strategies
• Gain an industry perspective from Sainsburys and Müller
• Explore the most recent developments with leading experts from Gough Square Chambers, 36 Bedford Row, Themis Chambers and Addleshaw Goddard
• Examine how the EU’s UCPD has translated into UK law – and how to comply

Plus, don’t miss the post-Conference Workshop on Practical considerations for ensuring compliance with the UCPD – an examination of the terminology, main offences and banned practices, on Thursday 24 May 2012 (3 CPD Hours). This separately bookable, half-day course will be led by Frederick Philpott of Gough Square Chambers, along with Karen Taylor of Themis Chambers and Jonathan Kirk of 36 Bedford Row.
