New York State Bar Association International Section Global Law Week

2:30PM  -  4:30PM

Aurora Cassirer , David M. Chaiken

Troutman Sanders attorneys Aurora Cassirer and David Chaiken will participate on a panel during the New York State Bar Association International Section's Global Law Week 2018 to discuss the increasing practice by the legislature (and the courts) of forcing management of an organization to "act" and to secure legally compliant action at all levels in the organization.

This began in the anti-bribery area (The US in practice, the UK Bribery Act and more) and has spread to other areas of (corporate) law and behavior. We see the trend in anti-trust, data privacy (GDPR) in the EU, in tax law (OECD/BEPS) and the obligation in some countries for companies to report on tax planning. Iceland recently introduced legislation under which the management is held responsible for equal pay, so it is obvious the principle will spread. The purpose of this panel is to discuss the principle, the current status, and also look into the future.

Reception to follow.
