Why ignition

General Counsel Know How

We have worked hard on developing our internal General Counsel Know How programme at Ignition Law, and these sessions are given by our lawyers to our lawyers.

We think however that certain topics may have a wider appeal and offer value to either in-house Counsel or seasoned entrepreneurs and these topics form the backbone of our GC Know-How programme.

We invite contributions from all and, as participants have a legal background or developed working knowledge, the sessions offer the opportunity for a frank discussion regarding certain legal topics in practice.

Often other advisors and professionals we work closely with partner with us to provide this training which also adds to a varied and interesting calendar.

As the programme progresses we will include material and excerpts from the sessions and the contact details for the individual lawyers.
