The Corinthia Hotel in Whitehall is no stranger to celebrities but for the two-hour seminar they gave way to their lawyers, agents and advisers.

Nearly 200 delegates heard how the world-leading legislation can be used to manage and protect image and brand.

‘The event was a great success and we were incredibly pleased with the turnout, which was a clear demonstration of the significant interest that has been shown regarding our ground-breaking new legislation,’ said Fiona Le Poidevin, chief executive of Guernsey Finance.
