    UPDATE: Due to the evolving situation surrounding COVID-19, we will be rescheduling our Subsidiary Governance: Creating an Effective Framework event. The new date is currently pending. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 

    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.

    Who should attend

    This one day conference will be of interest to you if you are a:

    • General counsel of a parent company  with subsidiaries
    • Legal counsel to a subsidiary entity
    • Compliance officer in a multi-entity organization
    • Executive on the board of a subsidiary company
    • Corporate secretary of a parent or subsidiary board
    • Comptroller or CFO responsible for inter-company transfers
    • Accountant responsible for tax planning
