Legal Community

Finding an appropriate regulatory balance between privacy and innovation is integral to the future development of e-commerce. Likewise, the balance between private and public enforcement of consumer and other policies is changing with moves towards private enforcement through collective redress, for example.

Through our Legal Community, BCR members have the opportunity to shape legislative/policy proposals in the longer-term debate for post-Brexit arrangements.
