Modern Slavery

A seminar by

Anthony Galvin

 FCIArb, Dip Adj, Barrister

 

·         What is modern slavery?

·         Who does the Modern Slavery Act 2015 apply to?

·         How does this affect the construction industry?

·         What are the penalties for not complying?

According to a report by LexisNexis BSI “An estimated 7% of to global workforce works in construction.”  Anthony will unravel what that mean for those working in the UK construction industry today as well as the greater supply chains and out sourced providers.


Anthony is a Barrister and Director of Altion Law Limited, a commercial law firm specialising (amongst other things) in construction law and disputes with HMRC. Anthony was called to the Bar in 2003 but rather than enter chambers he began working for a well-established construction consultancy before becoming in-house counsel for part of one of the world’s largest insurance and private healthcare groups.  Anthony then set up his own legal consultancy specialising in construction disputes and HMRC matters before founding Altion Law Limited with his business partner in 2013.  Today Anthony continues to specialise in the areas of construction and HMRC whilst he continues to perform his in house counsel role within the insurance and private healthcare sector, giving his advice a wider commercial aspect and realism.
