Overview (Program Summary)

Liable for what happens in foreign countries and subsidiaries? Or even for wrongdoings by your suppliers? Join us for this informative programme sponsored by Pestalozzi to hear first-hand from experts on what every in-house counsel needs to know on:

•    Duties and possible liability of your company and its board members and officers under Swiss law as of today;

•    Possible changes due to the popular responsible business initiative "Konzernverantwortungsinitiative" and the counter proposal currently under discussion by the members of parliament;

•    Corporate social responsibility and how you and your team can best avoid liabilities and contribute to meaningful measures.
