About the Seminar:

No company ever plans to be under attacks from third parties for alleged corporate malfeasance or missteps in compliance. However, an increasing number of companies in Hong Kong have fallen victim to accusations such as fraud, mismanagement, or breach of disclosure or other regulatory requirements by short sellers, activist shareholders and securities regulators. These situations often require a company’s Board of Directors to conduct an independent investigation to identify and address any underlying issues in order to move forward as a business. Determining how to proceed and handle quickly, efficiently and successfully can be challenging.

The speakers who have experience advising Hong Kong and foreign based companies dealing with unexpected and unwelcome special investigations will have discussion on this topic. In addition, they will provide practical advice on how to conduct an effective investigation, implement remediation and conduct improvement plans, execute reputation management or crisis communication strategies and protect against litigation and reputation risk.
