    Subsidiary governance has moved from an emerging area to one of increased global focus. Courts worldwide are demonstrating a willingness to entertain the idea of piercing the corporate veil for an evolving tort of human rights abuse.  Regulators are showing an increasing interest in parent company accountability and management liability for subsidiary oversight.  Parent company boards must find the right balance between the parent company’s need to set group strategy and coordinate group oversight, while respecting the legal duties of subsidiary directors. As businesses become more complex, a thoughtful and effective subsidiary governance framework is critical.

    Join some of the leading practitioners and academics for this important one day event, and learn more about how to build an effective subsidiary governance framework in your organization.
