Marketing law update
Ignorance is no defence
The number of laws affecting marketing increases each year. A breach of the law can be costly; not just a potential fine but perhaps more damaging is the loss of brand equity. More than ever, it's important for marketers to know their responsibilities and know what you can and cannot do when running campaigns.
An expert team of presenters will bring you up-to-date with major pieces of legislation which impact on marketers today. Andrew Jones has been a Partner at Cardiff Bay solicitors Hek Jones since its inception in September 2006, and prior to that trained and qualified in a top-5 Welsh law firm. Andrew specialises in Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution and in his presentations will be covering two main areas: common legal pitfalls for marketers; and recent legal developments which may have an impact on marketing. Andrew has experience in handling a wide caseload covering all aspects of civil procedure including intellectual property matters, professional negligence actions, breach of contract, construction disputes, debt and insolvency matters (both individual and corporate), cohabitation disputes relating to property, defamation matters, injunctions and other commercial disputes.
