Our presenters

Alison Flannigan 900

Alison Choy Flannigan

Partner

Alison is co-chairing the discussion ‘Vaccination – A right to choose or a social obligation?’

Given the wider public health issues involved, should it be left to a parent to decide, or does there come a point when the law must step in to protect the child and the public at large? If so, is this best achieved through education and encouragement, or coercion and compulsion? What are the legal and ethical issues?

Peter Murray 900

Peter Murray

This panel will focus on the challenges faced when structuring and aligning the financing for cross border real estate transactions.
