As you grow your business internationally, you need officers and directors to govern your local subsidiaries. But what are the risks and challenges that you face when appointing officers and directors for subsidiaries around the globe, and what in turn are the duties and liabilities to which those officers and directors are exposed? Less than 10 years ago, it was seen as a privilege and a career goal to become a director or officer of a company — but with increased strict liability and the potential civil and criminal liabilities associated with being a director, the world has changed. It is key for you to understand the governance landscape in the various jurisdictions in which your company operates.
Please join us for our upcoming NDI Checkpoint Web conference featuring panelists from Eversheds LLP, an international firm that has advised and provided training for a large number of multi-nationals in Europe and beyond regarding issues associated with director and corporate secretary duties in foreign countries. This Web conference will provide a detailed training on critical issues to consider when dealing with directors and officers for your international subsidiaries in various jurisdictions.
The panel will be moderated by Robin Johnson, Eversheds Partner and head of its Industrial Engineering sector group. Panelists include the following from Eversheds: Partner Tony McGovern, Partner Sean Ryan, Partner Alexander Niethammer, Partner Eric Knai, Partner Daniela Murer, and Associate Dawn Sanderson, as well as Foley Partner Kevin D.
