Networking and a Michelin-starred menu

You will be mixing business with pleasure – the serious business of GDPR discussion, together with the pleasure of connecting with senior-level peers, colleagues and friends from leading legal institutions.

This takes place over a 4-course gourmet dinner in the Michelin-starred restaurant at St James’s Hotel & Club, where chef William Drabble is creating a bespoke menu for the evening. There will be a Chief Whisky Officer experience comprising premium whiskey tasting, education, entertainment with a hint of competition.


The 5-star St James Hotel & Club first opened in 1857. Originally a members’ club with patrons including Winston Churchill, Henry James and Ian Fleming, this luxurious location is now a boutique hotel with a Michelin-starred restaurant (awarded for the seventh year in a row).
