Druces LLP is delighted to be celebrating its 250th anniversary in 2017.

While we are proud of our history, looking forward, we want to continue being as relevant to our clients and contacts as we possibly can.  That includes holding seminars that those same clients and contacts truly value, covering some of the most pressing current issues for businesses as well as individuals.

Our seminar programme for 2017 is delivered by lawyers (as well as other experts) who are leaders in their respective fields. All seminars will be held at Druces offices (Salisbury House, 29 Finsbury Circus, London EC2M 5PS) unless otherwise indicated. There is no charge for these events.

More comprehensive details for each seminar will be sent to our clients and contacts through the year. However, if you would like to be registered for any of these seminars now (events for the first quarter set out below), please click on the seminar title and an automatic email will be generated for you.
