Mourant & South Square Litigation Forum, London
We are pleased to be able to share the details of the annual Mourant and South Square Litigation Forum 2018 which will be hosted at Landing Forty Two on Thursday 20 September 2018.
We are thrilled to announce that Lord Finkelstein OBE will be our keynote speaker at this year's event.
The forum will be co-chaired by Peter Hayden and David Allison QC.
Daniel Finkelstein is a columnist and Associate Editor of The Times, responsible for the digital edition. He is also a member of the House of Lords and an advisor to the Conservative Party.
Daniel began his career as Chair of the Young Social Democrats, a group of whom went on to join the Conservatives. After serving as director of a Westminster think tank focusing on social policy, he became a political advisor to John Major and then William Hague, and was awarded an OBE. He has since aligned himself to modernisers like Cameron and Gove.
Following a brief spell in data communications, Daniel joined The Times, started their blog and worked his way up to the leader columns. He also writes a highly regarded and very distinctive statistics-based football review and pens regular columns for The Jewish Chronicle.
As a prominent commentator, Daniel’s talks provide a sharp and entertaining insight into the political scene. He originally likened the Coalition to American college fraternities: “The more humiliating, the more people wanted to join.”
