Partner Sharie A. Brown will serve as a moderator at the Forbes, Ethisphere Ethical Leadership Forum and 2008 World’s Most Ethical Companies Awards Dinner June 3, 2008 in New York. The panel, "Global Ethics and Legal Challenges" will take place from 3:45 p.m. - 4:40 p.m.
Part of being ethical is staying out of legal trouble. A single material compliance failure can waylay and waste the best efforts put forth for ethical leadership, community involvement and corporate social responsibility. How does a corporation maintain a consistent, ethical message while still adjusting to local customs? Where and what are the major legal land mines that companies need to keep in mind (in other words enforcement initiatives and trends)? and how is the legal landscape changing the standards that large corporations must abide by?
