Essential listening for lawyers and clients

Just finished the “Non-discloser” podcast. As with most podcasts, I was planning on listening to this as I was on the move. I then realised how useful the content was and so I stopped, went back to the beginning and took notes! Perfect length for a podcast and great content.
