Corporate Governance - Directors' and Officers' Fudiciary Duties
Regulations and requirements imposed by Sarbanes-Oxley, US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and UK Anti-Bribery Act)
The course provides a full examination of the requirements imposed on directors and company officers, including both the Duty of care and the Fiduciary duty to which they are subject.
The course also takes an in-depth look at the changed regulatory and reporting systems imposed on Companies, Directors and Officers over the last few years, including the measures that must be taken to avoid prosecution for permitting corruption to take place.
Participants will gain an understanding of both the principles and the essential rules and requirements of the different legislation now in place, to develop and impose effective, compliant anti-corruption over-sight systems.
The course will be delivered, over a very full schedule, by experienced lawyers used to the multicultural, international flavour of modern international business. We will cover not only the practical knowledge needed by lawyers working in international commerce but will also simulate an international bidding scenario and include numerous examples of formerly accepted practices which are now out-lawed. This will involve simulated strategy meetings, as well as policy development in teams led by the trainers. There will be numerous breakout sessions, for the participants to work through the material in the presentations. All of this will require full input from the participants to ensure they gain sufficient understanding of the cultural, practical and legal issues involved to be able to advise on Corporate governance in the future. Directors' Fiduciary Duties and the duties owed by managers and shareholders to the company and to each other are also covered in the packed schedule.
