ThinkHouse - Our in-house lawyer community

From managing risk and staying on top of regulatory developments, to adding value through expert legal and commercial advice, in-house lawyers faces many challenges. Access to like-minded people, training and resources can make a huge difference and offer a valuable network of support.

ThinkHouse provides a range of seminars and resources, tailored exclusively to help in-house lawyers in their day-to-day roles. Since its launch 14 years ago, we've added ThinkHouse Foundations (for in-house lawyers up to five years PQE), ThinkHouse for Public Service Commissioners and Providers , a regular IT Masterclass and TUPE Club.

Our experience of advising companies of all sectors and sizes - including many FTSE 100 and 250 businesses, Fortune 500 corporations, financial institutions and public bodies - means we have a wealth of knowledge and insight to share. Many of our own lawyers have also held in-house roles or worked on client secondments, so understand the demands on in-house legal teams.

Your ThinkHouse

If you are a GC, Head of Legal or senior in-house lawyer, looking to broaden your network and gain access to timely, topical and practical legal advice, then ThinkHouse is for you.

Based on topics chosen by the ThinkHouse community, our events and supporting materials are designed to support you in dealing with the issues that are coming across your desks.

Action-orientated and to the point, these sessions provide not just a summary of the law from our experts but a clear point of view, broad perspective and practical advice. How might an issue affect your business? What are the priorities and action points to consider? How might you advise the Board? Are there potential pitfalls to be avoided? In joining ThinkHouse you will be invited to two main events each year. They are a great way to access relevant news and information, as well as meet and exchange ideas with peers. At other points throughout the year we run workshops and roundtables allowing for more in-depth discussion on specific areas of interest.


Videos, alerts, annual CPD reports, checklists, workshops, webinars, podcasts, networking sessions and client panels.

ThinkHouse Foundations


For in-house lawyers starting out in their careers, ThinkHouse Foundations provides the benefits of our ThinkHouse training sessions but exclusively for paralegals, trainees and lawyers of up to five years' PQE. Aimed at 'supporting your development' it provides valuable knowledge and guidance together with practical tips to assist you.

The Foundations programme opens up opportunities to meet new contacts, exchange ideas and develop a peer-to-peer network of legal professionals who are at the same career stage as you.

Run independently to the main ThinkHouse event, it is led by our own up-and-coming lawyers. The focus here is on networking and training to grow individuals' skills, knowledge and contacts.

ThinkHouse for Public Service Commissioners and Providers


Following growing interest from colleagues working in or with the public sector it was clear to us that there was a demand for events where our updates and topics need to be covered in context relevant to the public sector. ThinkHouse for Public Service Commissioners and Providers has now been running for three years and delivers a very specific set of events. Topical and practical these sessions are tailored to cover the issues affecting in-house lawyers working in or contracting with the public sector.

Topics from the past year have included procurement, contacts and judicial review, the Cabinet Office Model Agreement, and effective contract management.

The sessions also offer you the opportunity to meet and share perspectives with others working in or with the public sector.

IT Masterclass


IT and technology is an ever-increasing component in almost everything we do. Our IT Masterclass series is run bi-annually, providing updates and insight from our specialist Commercial, IT & Outsourcing and Dispute Resolution teams.

Whether you are keen to learn more about cloud computing, get up-to-speed on data protection law and cyber security, or refresh your knowledge of IT contract law, this forum will provide you with everything an in-house lawyer needs to know.



For anyone with an interest in TUPE, we have established our very own TUPE Club. As part of our TUPE Club LinkedIn network you'll receive the latest thoughts and developments on TUPE from our employment experts, as well as TUPE news from around the web.

One of the biggest benefits of this forum is the opportunity to swap views and comments with your fellow professionals through our digital channels or by attending our regular TUPE webinars.
