Real Estate Legal Update 2017 - The Future Size and Shape of Real Estate

In the wake of the general election and with the publication of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, this autumn looks set to be a pivotal moment in the British economy. This year's keynote speaker is ideally placed to give a personal overview of where the economy is heading and the impact on British businesses, including his views on the future size and shape of real estate within a post-Brexit economy.

Dr Andrew Sentance, Senior Economic Advisor to PWC, served as an external member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the Bank of England and was a founder member of the Treasury's Panel of Independent Forecasters at the Confederation of British Industry. He was Chief Economist and Head of Environmental Affairs at British Airways and is a Fellow and former Chairman of the Society of Business Economists.

Andrew will be followed by a series of talks from members of our Real Estate team on the latest legal developments, after which we will host our not-to-be-missed cocktail party with food, drinks and entertainment.

The 2017 line-up is as follows:
