Walker Morris Partner to speak on driving the Northern Powerhouse

David Kilduff, Partner and Head of the Energy, Infrastructure & Government Team at Walker Morris will be speaking at this year’s Yorkshire Legal Conference “Driving the Northern Powerhouse” on Wednesday 28 September 2016 at the University of Law, Leeds.

The conference will be chaired by Nick Hawkins of St Philips Chambers and will focus on the concept of the “Northern Powerhouse” and what this means for the future of the legal profession. Aimed at barristers and solicitors from across the region, the conference will consider issues such as foreign investment, the implications of the investment into the country and how lawyers can make the most of the opportunities presented to them.

David will be joined by Professor Andrea Nollent from the University of Law and Martin Venning from UK Northern Powerhouse to discuss “The Implications of Brexit”, considering how the Northern Powerhouse will develop in light of the referendum decisions, the potential effects that leaving the EU could have on investment into the North from abroad and whether it will hurt or boost the Northern Powerhouse.
