This seminar examines issues of current importance frequently addressed by In-House Counsel as a result of increasingly complex roles.  The responsibilities in relation to regulatory obligations are often referred to Counsel within the organisation. The landscape is always evolving and the obligations for listed and unlisted public companies as well as larger private companies are extensive.  The In-House Counsel also has to develop skills to communicate effectively with both internal clients and management.  A deep understanding of the currents in the wider economy are essential to protect your stakeholders from a range of risks.
