On Thursday 17 May John Fingleton gave a presentation on the OFT's Consumer Portfolio to over 60 senior level stakeholder executives and lawyers.
The presentation shed light on how economic trends, changing patterns of consumer and business behaviour as well as evolutions in technology, effect consumer law and its application over time. John charted the history of our consumer work, examined current cases and gave a look to the future. This was followed by questions from the floor which John chaired alongside a Goods & Consumer Director Panel - Aileen Armstrong, Jason Freeman and Nigel Cates.
