Dear members, dear colleagues,
It is clear that in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, there has been a marked shift in the policies of many governments to ensure that individuals “responsible” for wrongdoing, whether it is bank failures, tax evasion, anti-trust breaches, corruption or money laundering, should be, and are, prosecuted. Following on from last year’s successful seminar on the ‘Prevention of Criminal Liability of Directors and Corporates in France and Elsewhere’, the Competition Law, Labour Law and Criminal Law Commissions of the UIA have come together to organise a joint seminar on the key developments in this area.
In-house and external counsel will be joining us to consider the legal and practical challenges faced as a result of enforcement agencies’ increased focus on holding senior officers to account, as well as considering the competing interests of corporates and their employees, the gradual erosion of client-attorney privilege, and whether compliance is the answer.
FORWARD TO A COLLEAGUE?
If you have a colleague that might be interested, whether a member or a non-member of the UIA, whether a lawyer or non-lawyer, may we suggest that you kindly forward this message to him or her. Thank you!
