ABL Breakfast Forum

As we move into 2023 and toward the economic uncertainty that many are expecting, please join us for the latest of our ABL breakfast forum series.

For this event we will be joined by Lord Gavin Barwell, former Chief of Staff to the Prime Minister and now senior strategic and political consultant at DLA Piper, who will be reflecting on the political turbulence of the last 12 months, providing his view on what 2023 might hold and what we might expect politically, in both the UK and internationally. These should be essential (and entertaining) insights for everyone in our industry.

As usual, there will be opportunities for networking before and after the main session.


The Rt Hon. Lord Gavin Barwell

Lord (Gavin) Barwell helps DLA Piper’s clients to devise effective government engagement strategies. He also provides political horizon-scanning briefings for boards and senior executive teams. Previously, Lord Barwell served as Chief of Staff to the Prime Minister from June 2017 to July 2019 during one of the most turbulent periods in British political history. As the Prime Minister’s senior political adviser, he was intimately involved in the workings of Whitehall, the conduct of the Brexit negotiations and the development of key domestic policies such as the long-term plan for the NHS and the UK’s commitment to net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
