Enron and other local and international corporate scandals, financial collapse and attacks on corporate reputation could have been averted with proactive and best practice legal risk management. Calamitous legal and reputational penalties to companies, directors, and officers, as well as external advisers would never have eventuated.  Legal risk is now an integral part of the boardroom agenda, regardless of the size of the organisation. This provides a new challenge for in-house lawyers, who can play a crucial role in ensuring that a risk-aware culture prevails across the organisation. Any successful risk management programme must start within the management and its operations.

This newly introduced seminar will give participants  the guidance and information necessary to design, install and begin to run a compliance and legal risk management system,  or to review the  existing system and put in place further preventive measures to minimise the  organisation’s exposure to  compliance and legal  risk. It will also show participants how to protect in-house clients and interact with regulators, supervisors and stakeholders.
