BTO Host Chinese Delegation to Share Health & Safety Knowledge

22 June 2016

Leading Scottish law firm BTO Solicitors LLP has announced that on 22 June it will be host to a delegation of Chinese visitors from the State Administration of Work Safety (SAWS), P.R. China.

The opportunity arose via the firm’s links with Jamie Brogan, Head of Professional Development at Napier University. 

Whilst in Scotland, the Chinese delegates are conducting a research programme with two strands. The first element has a focus on Arts, Regulations and Criteria of Occupational Health and Safety and the second strand concerns Administrative Review and Civil Litigation.

At BTO’s One Edinburgh Quay office, two of BTO’s Associates, Laura Irvine, a former procurator fiscal and a qualified Solicitor Advocate in the firm’s prominent Health & Safety team and Stephen Waclawski, a Solicitor Advocate in the firm’s Insurance Casualty team, will provide a seminar on “Health and Safety: Regulatory Defence & Civil Litigation” in order to inform the Chinese delegates’ research.

Alan Borthwick, BTO’s Chairman, said: “We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to host this Chinese delegation via Napier University.

Our health and safety lawyers and litigators are vastly experienced in what they do and at BTO we consider knowledge sharing to be a vital ingredient for progress.”
