The impact of regulation in the ongoing business operations of companies increases daily in complexity and scope. There is heightened pressure for general counsel, compliance officers, risk managers and outside legal advisors to assess, monitor and mitigate regulatory risk within static or decreasing budgetary envelopes. Achieving these goals is a complicated endeavor involving ever changing laws and regulations, while maintaining a good working relationship with regulators. This course is designed to provide valuable strategies for ensuring appropriate risk management strategies, managing reputational risk and dealing with the media in crisis situations, developing early measures for defence of regulatory claims, and managing litigation risks including class actions. Our expert faculty will provide their “lessons learned” and best practices for general counsel, in-house lawyers, compliance and risk management professionals dealing with these everyday challenges.
