Discuss whether the crisis has been revealing of organisational culture and how firms can go beyond rules and standards to achieve real cultural change, in a vacuum.

Benchmark against peers with responses to the latest regulatory updates and how legal teams should be interpreting them.

Understand how businesses can weather the climate crisis with learnings from COVID-19.

The Financial Services world operates in a fast paced and high-pressured environment. Meanwhile, businesses are also dealing with an unprecedented change with many firms supporting the government’s furlough scheme and facilitating the needs of customers during a period of economic uncertainty. Legal counsel and compliance officers working in this sector need to continuously stay on top of the latest regulatory, governmental and socioeconomic changes to guide their businesses through an impending recession and into a stable future.

The Lawyer’s In-house Financial Services conference is aimed at in-house lawyers and compliance professionals interested in discussing the practical implications of the regulatory change the sector is currently facing.
