8.30: Welcome coffee and registration
9.00: Chairs' welcome
9.10: Fireside chat with David Green
9.40: Session 1: The future of enforcement in the UK: Is the SFO now properly equipped to meet the UK's enforcement needs and what should the priorities be for its next Director?
Following the DPAs with Rolls Royce, Tesco and Standard Bank, the SFO is taken seriously around the world. Is the SFO's future now secure or is there a better model than the one currently in place? Should the SFO be judged on its revenue generation or by some other measure? Our panel of leading names will debate these and other questions in the popular GIR style.
Questions expected to be discussed include:
11.00: Coffee break
11.30: Session 2: Increasing personal liability: What does it mean for inhouse counsel and private practitioners, and how can both groups protect themselves?
Can in-house counsel be expected to perform as ‘corporate policemen' in an era where enforcers are seeking to put a target on their back? Our panellists will discuss the difficult position of the in-house lawyer who gives advice that the business ignores. What can they do? They may not have the financial luxury of being able to just walk away from the job.
Other questions the panel are expected to discuss include:
13.00: Chairs' closing remarks
13.10: Networking lunch
14.10: Close of conference
