Royds Withy King Supports FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival

Financial Times - Royds Withy King

As a UK Top 100 law firm with a large office in central Oxford, we are perfectly positioned to  support the FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival – a series of controversial discussions led by high profile speakers which form part of the internationally-acclaimed weekend festival.

The Oxford Debates are taking place at Oxford Martin School from 17th to 25th March and will be led by historians, politicians, philosophers, economists and authors covering some of the most challenging topics of our time, including immigration, Brexit, climate change, education, Trump and the nature of evil.

Simon Bassett

Simon Bassett, lead partner in the Oxford office of Royds Withy King, said: “We are proud to be associated with the FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival and the debates discussing some of the most challenging issues of our time. This provides us with a fantastic opportunity to engage with our clients and contacts while supporting our brand as ‘lawyers ahead of the curve’.”
