Events & Training

Barristers at QEB Hollis Whiteman regularly conduct training on a wide range of legal subjects – both general and highly specific. Many of our members are acknowledged experts in their specialist field of law and are, in addition, experienced speakers and trainers.

Members of our specialist Intellectual Property group within QEB Hollis Whiteman regularly provide training in intellectual property and trading standards – both the law and practice. This training is delivered to local authorities, the police, prosecutors (in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland) and all those involved in the enforcement of the relevant legislation. Ari Alibhai is a specialist in intellectual property crime, fraud and confiscation and has given numerous seminars and lectures to Trading Standards, Police Regional Intelligence Units and the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys. David Groome regularly addresses trading standards authorities on effective prosecution.

We have provided training on preparation for disciplinary tribunals, for a range of professional bodies and user groups. Mark Aldred is an expert in covert surveillance-related legislation – the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA), Public Interest Immunity (PII) and the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act – and has frequently spoken on these and related matters.

Paul Raudnitz lectures on a range of legal subjects, including The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 and The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and on unused material/disclosure.  He has also recently recorded a podcast with Brent and Harrow Trading Standards dealing with “Wheel Clamping: Regulation and the Criminal Law”.

With our breadth and depth of expertise in all areas of the law, we are happy to put together a bespoke training programme or seminar programme, targeted specifically at the audience involved and the intended outcome of the training, such as improving practical expertise in a particular area of the law.
