Event: Legal Leaders General Counsel Forum – May 18th-19th

AshdownLexisNexis is proud to be partnering with Tavistock Media to bring you the Legal Leaders General Counsel Forum on May 18th-19th at Ashdown Park Hotel, East Sussex.

Following last year’s hugely successful inaugural event, the focus of this year’s Forum is the role of the in-house lawyer as the conscience of an organisation and guardian of its legal and regulatory compliance. It’s an exciting opportunity to learn from your peers and share best practice in a collaborative setting.

Why attend?

The Legal Leaders General Counsel Forum isn’t an ordinary conference. Don’t expect to just sit and listen. The aim is to create a forum for debate through panel and group discussions. Interactive sessions will draw out invaluable market insight and practical advice that you can take away and apply immediately.

How can you improve your current processes and policies to help you succeed? Are there innovative ways you could be doing things differently and more effectively? At the Forum, you’ll engage in conversations about the issues and challenges that are in the forefront of the minds of your peers. This interactive approach makes the Forum perfect for networking and sharing ideas.

What’s covered?

Key topics for discussion include:

  • What does compliance mean in practice?
  • Overcoming challenges to embed a compliant culture
  • How do you ensure operational effectiveness?
  • Avoiding the legal and ethical problems of modern slavery
  • Ensuring the business is not implicated in bribery and corruption
  • The political, legal and ethical issues around sanctions
  • The treatment of whistleblowing and the reputational implications.
