Event Overview

Lifecycle of an entrepreneur – from personal to personnel // IPCFL Seminar // Annual labour law conference

Come join us in historic Cambridge from 26 to 28 June 2025. The Employment and Immigration Law Commission and International Private Clients and Family Law (IPCFL) Commission join forces to give you the latest updates on what affects an entrepreneur, from the personal to the personnel. Apart from taking part in a highly relevant and knowledge-packed academic programme, the seminar offers the possibility to partake in a Cambridge pastime for the ages – punting! 

IPCFL Seminar

Embarking on the path of entrepreneurship is a journey filled with twists, turns, challenges, and triumphs. This seminar offers a comprehensive exploration of the entrepreneurial lifecycle, offering invaluable insights navigating the complexities of business ownership, wealth management, and succession planning. The International Private Client and Family Law Commission will focus on asset protection, wealth preservation, family dynamics in the business, and also estate planning. The lifecycle of an entrepreneur is not all about the business but also the needs of the (international) family of an entrepreneur. How to handle and navigate difficult times (e.g divorce), and the end of the life of the entrepreneur will be considered.

Annual labour law conference - the latest and greatest in employment and immigration 

As the world grows smaller and smaller, yet spins faster and faster, employment and immigration developments emerge at an alarming pace. As an entrepreneur, the success of your ventures is most often contingent on the people you bring on board for your endeavours. Our labour and immigration law panels aim to bring you the latest and greatest on what topics are trending in international employment and immigration practices all around the world, connecting the personnel to the personal aspect of running and operating a business.

Make sure to join us for a knowledge-packed conference on a wide variety of topics, where we will cover the growing effects of digitalisation, globalisation, transparency, privacy and ESG in the workplace and the free movement of people.

For the second part of the double seminar, the IPCFL and Employment and Immigration Commissions will investigate several intersecting points of the personal and the personnel.
