Substantive Law: 1.0
Directors Duties, Legal Advice and ASIC Investigations
The duties and responsibilities imposed on company directors and officers have never been more stringent or exposed. The requirement for their legal advisers to be across current developments has also never been more important.
This seminar will examine recent cases and developments, including to what extent directors should be aware of potential breaches of the law and whether there is a need for more effective protection for directors in decision making. It will also address potential claims, the signs to watch for and questions to ask when advising clients in this area.
The seminar will provide guidance on how companies should modify their practices and procedures and will also cover the most recent ASIC investigations and cases. It will also discuss the wide range of powers that ASIC officers can and are enforcing.
The session will also outline ASIC’s plans to embed officials inside Australia’s biggest banks to monitor governance and compliance, plus the establishment of a taskforce to look into large listed companies including on-site surveillance and investigation.
This is a seminar not to be missed!
