Saunderson House is pleased to announce that it is the exclusive Wealth Management Silver sponsor of the Global Law Summit. The event, which takes place in London on 23-25 February 2015, is endorsed by The Rt Hon David Cameron MP, Prime Minister. It is supported by organisations including The Law Society of England and Wales, The Bar Council, ComBar, Ministry of Justice, TheCityUK and UKTI.

Launched by Secretary of State for Justice and Lord Chancellor, the Rt. Hon. Chris Grayling MP, the event is a unique one-off high level business forum supported by the legal profession, business and government. Unlike other legal conferences, the Global Law Summit will bring together a mix of practitioners, business leaders, public sector decision makers and government officials from around the world to discuss, debate, and develop relationships across markets and jurisdictions.

Christopher Sexton, investment director of Saunderson House, will be speaking at the Global Law Summit on the topic of ‘Investing in 2015 and beyond’. With the UK economy growing faster than most, the talk will highlight the issues wealthy individuals may face and provide practical ideas for how a busy law professional should approach investing in 2015 and beyond.

Beverly Landais, marketing and business development director of Saunderson House, commented: “The Global Law Summit is a prestigious milestone in the 2015 legal calendar. With speakers including Boris Johnson, Cherie Blair QC, Lionel Barber, Trevor Manuel, and a video message from Aung San Suu Kyi, Saunderson House is very proud to be associated with it. Our firm has successfully served the legal sector for many years, helping clients manage their wealth effectively. We believe we have a great deal to contribute to the conversations within the industry and are pleased to be involved”.

John O’Brien, chief executive of The Global Law Summit, said: “The Global Law Summit is a unique world-class international legal and business event. It is fitting that an award-winning wealth management firm of the calibre of Saunderson House has joined as a sponsor. We are delighted to welcome them on board”.

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
