We are pleased to share with you the video recording from our recent “Beyond Geographical Differences: US v UK Lateral Partner Vetting” Webinar, co-hosted with Decipher and Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

The thirteenth and final session ended the IFSEA 2021 Virtual Conference with a bang. We met the Management Board of Broadside PLC, a hypothetical multinational retail company facing a major corporate crisis: in the middle of the due diligence process for the sale of the US arm of the business, ongoing embezzlement by one of the company’s international executives and false accounting has been discovered by the GC who tries to cover it up.

The twelfth session was an informative and constructive conversation about handling Senior Executive and Founder dismissals, specifically addressing the employment, directorship and equity considerations for exiting international executives, with perspectives from Australia, China, Switzerland and the UK.

The eleventh session was an insightful examination of the practical aspects of minimising the risk of litigation in international team moves, and navigating the risks once litigation is live, with perspectives from the UK, US and Canada.

The tenth session was a really interesting and lively discussion about the processes, practices and common pitfalls surrounding civil and criminal investigations into Senior Executives and Founders, with perspectives from the US, UK, France and The Netherlands.

The ninth session was a really thought-provoking discussion on the changing role of the senior executive, specifically how international executives can find business and social purpose, and understand the legal and reputational risks of charitable and other non-profit roles.

The eighth session was an interesting discussion about whether international whistleblowing laws go far enough to protect and encourage the principled executive, and how they can best manage the potential legal, regulatory and reputational risks of blowing the whistle on wrongdoing in corporate and public life.

The seventh session was a great discussion about the responsibilities, risks and opportunities associated with holding non-executive roles from both US and UK perspectives.

The fifth session was an informative conversation on what new protections, powers and provisions senior executives and founders should be seeking in protecting themselves against global disruption, including Brexit, COVID-19 and political upheaval around the world.
