The autumn equinox has now passed and winter is coming. Before the leaves disappear completely AM Advocates are pleased to announce that its popular Four Seasons Programme of Seminars for practitioners will continue with a Glasgow edition of the Autumn Seminar on Commercial Disputes which met with great approval from delegates when it was run recently in Edinburgh.

Advocates Scott Manson, Tim Young and David Turner will cover topical matters arising from the commercial court.  The Seminar will qualify for 2 hours of CPD.
