Reducing Evolving Litigation Risks & Ensuring Accountability: Current Approaches

Thursday, October 28, 2021, 12:00-1:30 p.m. ET

Boards today are expected to oversee an ever-expanding menu of risks. Paying attention to excessive financial risk, responding to behavioural and sexual harassment complaints against senior corporate leaders, preventing mistreatment of customers, preparing for cybersecurity breaches, environmental disasters and labour abuses in the supply chain - are just some examples that are consuming their attention.

Due to these escalating risks, a robust risk function is more critical than ever for a company’s sustainable growth and profitability. Improve your ability to ensure your clients have the right risk oversight protocols and capabilities in place including:

  • Developing systems to protect against misconduct, data breaches, and failures in corporate responsibility
  • The latest guidelines for drafting policies and procedures to help boards fulfill their fiduciary duties
  • Evaluating board oversight and corporate behavior: what are the prevailing standards?
  • Creating appropriate mechanisms to hold directors accountable
  • Getting off a board: personal liability, releases and conflict prevention
  • Getting familiar with new options in insurance policies: making sure your clients have the right insurance coverage
