Event: Compliance roundtable discussion – September 27th

36967110 - scheme basketball game on blackboardLexisNexis is partnering with Douglas Scott Legal Recruitment and Radius Law to bring you an exciting event on one of the hottest topics in-house. How to develop your gameplan for an effective compliance programme is a FREE roundtable discussion for in-house lawyers and compliance professionals being held on Tuesday 27th September 2016 in Manchester.


Why attend?

Compliance is becoming ever more of a priority for in-house lawyers and understanding how to best manage it can be complicated. There is often a lack of clarity about what compliance includes and who is responsible for its many different facets. In this constantly changing area, establishing and maintaining an effective compliance programme is absolutely key.

What’s covered?

The roundtable provides an interactive forum for exploring how to develop a successful strategy for managing compliance issues. Key areas covered by the discussion will include:

  • What should your compliance programme cover?
  • How to measure your programme’s effectiveness
  • Getting buy-in from the Board
  • Should compliance sit with Legal?
  • Practical tips and common mistakes to avoid
  • Resourcing compliance work.

Who will be there?

The roundtable will be facilitated by two experts on compliance and its impact on in-house legal teams:

  • Sophie Gould, Head of LexisNexis PSL In-house. Sophie previously spent 7 years as Head of Legal for Virgin Radio and Ginger Media Group. She also ran a legal risk and compliance training business. At LexisNexis, Sophie develops legal and business content for in-house lawyers and is in constant dialogue with lawyers to capture best practice.
  • Iain Larkins, Director and Founder of Radius Law. Iain’s in-house career spans 14 years, including a number of years as General Counsel and Chief Compliance officer for the Mercedes-Benz UK Group.
