William Hamilton attends PEOPIL Annual Conference in Dublin on 29 and 30 September 2023

William Hamilton attended the Annual Conference of the Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers held in Dublin on 29 and 30 September 2023. William reported:

"As ever the conference was very well-attended by esteemed lawyers from the UK, Europe and the USA. The topics discussed were wide-ranging, including liability for over-prescription of opioids in the USA, regulation of artificial intelligence in the EU, liability in the sphere of dangerous sports taking place overseas, compensation for sexual abuse and, of course, the effect of Brexit on cross-border claims. This was an excellent opportunity for lawyers across Europe to share their knowledge of how personal injury claims are conducted in various different jurisdictions."

William is Head of the Travel & International Personal Injury Law Group at 9 St John Street Chambers.
