For more details about the events, here are the contact details. 

The MBL conference on SRA regulation and professional conduct is a presitgious event where a number of practitioners who specialise in Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal [SDT] and advising on general compliance issues are speaking. Jeremy is concentrating on Interventions and other internal SRA disciplinary hearings, having appeared in two recent leading High Court cases which have considered the law in this niche area. 

Although interventions can be highly conentious, due to lack of funding by those who are subject to intervention by the SRA, it is rare for cases to be contested beyond an initial objection. Jeremy will deal with the legal framework and what other steps should be taken if a determined effort is to be made to stop the process in its tracks.

Together with Ian Coupland at Lewis Nedas, Jeremy also advised in a sustantial case where the SRA were persuaded not to intervene following written representations and a package of measures being introduced to deal with public interest issues that had arisen.

Jeremy also has a longstanding interest in the use of Blockchain technolgies together with Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things. He recently gave evdence before the House of Lords Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence and has published papers with Professor Philip Treleaven at UCL on the Law of Algorithms and also Algorithmic Dispute Resolution. 

Jeremy is a founder and director of the Construction Blockchain Consortium [CBC] at UCL, which is the leading global research and networking group, with branches recently being established in Washington, New York and LA.
