Presentation

#UIABusinessLaw

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 managers liability held in Zurich, 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, this time focusing more on the Nordic experience, but simultaneously exploring key developments from around the world.


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.

Seminar organised by the UIA with the support of the Association of Danish Law Firms and Gorrissen Federspiel Law Firm.
