David Walbank QC introduces the Autumn/Winter Series in The Red Lion Lectures 2019

September 6, 2019
When introducing the Autumn/Winter Series in The Red Lion Lectures 2019, David Walbank QC says:

“The Red Lion Lectures are now firmly established in the London legal landscape and, having returned from our summer holidays rested and rejuvenated, we are about to embark upon the Autumn/Winter programme.

In arranging this series, our central aim was to offer stimulating yet practical lectures on the most topical issues of the day, all delivered by senior members of chambers in tandem with guest speakers from some of London’s leading criminal and regulatory firms. We pride ourselves on having achieved that aim; already this year, the topics covered have included HMRC Investigations, Unexplained Wealth Orders, Private Prosecutions, the Serious Fraud Office, Search Warrants and a Review of the Year in Business Crime and our external lecturers have hailed from Kingsley Napley, Peters & Peters, BCL Law, Blackfords, Withers Worldwide, Edmonds Marshall McMahon and Brightline Law.

It is a tough act to follow but I’m confident we can do it. For our next event, on Monday 9th September 2029, we are rolling out the big guns! Our Joint Head of Chambers, Tony Shaw QC, will lecture on the highly topical subject of Prosecution Disclosure, together with Steve Sharp, partner at Bivonas Law. Further lectures in the Autumn and Winter series will be on AML, Environmental Prosecutions, the Financial Conduct Authority and the current prognosis for Abuse of Process. Full details of the continuing programme are set out in the following pages.

As ever, I must express my thanks to our partners in this venture at the Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London, without whom none of this would have been possible. We very much hope that this innovative professional and academic association can continue long into the future.”
