This presentation promotes an interactive discussion of the duties and liabilities of directors and officers in the United States, Canada, and other jurisdictions. Of particular interest to in-house counsel in organizations with international operations, the program will focus on rights, liabilities, and other topics of unique importance to directors and officers of your company’s international subsidiaries and affiliates. The duties that are owed, by international directors, to other US-based directors, the corporation, and its shareholders are often scrutinized in the context of change of control transactions, conflict-of-interest disclosure, breach of confidentiality, and insider trading inquiries. The panel and audience will review a number of hypothetical scenarios and consider where conflicts can arise and how they might be proactively managed.
