TAGGED UNDER Seminar, BITA Networking Event

The British and Irish Trading Alliance (BITA) and London Construction Law Firm Silver Shemmings Ash LLP; Helping Businesses Grow and Sharing Expertise.

The 17th January saw the Grange Hotel at Tower Hill welcome construction industry professionals from across London, the Home Counties and Dublin for a legal and commercial awareness seminar run by Silver Shemmings Ash LLP. Solicitor, structural engineer and BITA board member Henry Hathaway presented the seminar, and shared his insights on the formation of construction contracts, discussed payment mechanisms and provided advice on getting paid in a more timely manner.

‘BITA exists to help grow businesses, and to increase cooperation, and a big part of that is sharing expertise, so Silver Shemmings Ash LLP is delighted to be involved’ said Henry. ‘I’m excited to be able to offer these workshops for free to BITA members, as it’s never been more important to make sure that businesses are protected; we want to make sure that they have the tools to do that.’.

‘It’s great to attend a free event like this and come away with really useful information, amazing opportunity’ said Chris Davies from DRS Bond Management. Julie Barry attended from RIFT R&D also ‘really enjoyed the day, it’s great to have such a passionate speaker that really knows his stuff.’

Of course, it’s not all work, and many of the delegates that attended a local pub after, where songs were sang in the great Irish tradition with itinerant guitarist Willie Moone.

After the success of the first seminar, we are delighted to announce that we are teaming up with Silver Shemmings Ash to hold regular events. The next will be on the 11th April in central London. Anyone that is interested in attending or getting involved with BITA or contacting SSA, should contact laura@bita.ie.
