3rd Annual Legal Risk & Compliance

This conference addresses these pertinent issues and increases awareness of the potentially threatening scenarios and best strategies to mitigate them. An inclusive combination of case studies, roundtable discussions and half day workshops, allows delegates to receive the most up to date information in the most practical, informative and interactive setting. We aim to demonstrate how to ensurecompliance to latest legislation. We will elaborate on effectively combating fraud and corruption as well as how to maximise Competition Law in an age of innovation. Mitigating risks associated with cross border transactions will be a focal point, as organisations branch into Africa to further their corporate initiatives. Importantly, we intend on providing a 360 degree perspective on the role of legal teams, as they transform into enterprise wide power houses of risk mitigation. 


Boasting several high profile speakers, together with experienced and learned trainers, this conference will provide a holistic and comprehensive perspective on maximising legal risk mitigation efforts. Get to grips with the latest legislative environment and compliance requirements, and take your rightful place as business leaders on a global corporate stage.  You cannot afford to miss this exclusive opportunity.
