Legal Issues with SME Funding from UK Banks

David Calder and Cat McLean, MBM Commercial
David Calder and Cat McLean, litigation lawyers, have witnessed over the last few years some questionable behaviour from of some of the UK's best known banks.

More recently they brought the Royal Bank of Scotland to court and won in the case of Royal Bank of Scotland vs. Carlyle a client of their legal firm and a well respected property developer who has suffered at the hands of his bank despite many years of loyal business.

Far from being an isolated case, David and Cat are finding and hearing many more companies coming forward with similar stories. The evidence suggests that the problem which brought Derek’s case to court is in fact far more widespread than first thought. There will an opportunity to contribute and ask questions of Cat and David during this live webcast.

  • Texting. Smartphones. Tablets. Oh my! Business Communications in a Mobile World Mar 4 2015 8:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    A lot has changed in the way we communicate for business. A decade ago, most organizations had employees who came to the office every day, used desktop computers and desk phones, and stopped communicating for work when they went home.

    Today, people communicate for work anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Per Forrester, sixty-six percent of employees use two or more mobile devices for work. And according to Frost & Sullivan, nearly 25 percent of employees work from home or the road. What’s more, the desk phone is not the only business device. Based on a RingCentral survey, 35 percent of employees are using their mobile phones for work even when they are in the office. And nearly 80 percent of employees text for business, with 32 percent reporting that they’ve even closed a business deal via text.

    Even with these undeniable business behavior changes, the vast majority of companies haven’t optimized their communications infrastructure for mobile workforces or BYOD.

    Join this webinar to get ahead of the pack and learn the benefits of a cloud communications solution that supports the new world of work.
