Managing litigation and enforcement risks

Charles Laubach Private: James Bowden and Chatura Randeniya

With the increase in globalisation, cross-border transactions, market volatility and political risk as well as the constantly evolving business models, international businesses are more vulnerable to litigation risk and should remain vigilant to regulatory shifts.


Monitoring potential litigation and enforcement risks is key to a robust compliance culture.


A panel of experts from Afridi & Angell and Jenner & Block discussed the potential risks of litigation and enforcement and how to manage these risks during a breakfast seminar in Dubai. The discussion primarily addressed:


Risks arising out of litigation in the UK, US and UAE including:


  • Rules around the disclosure of documents.


  • Privilege concerns.


  • Reputational risks.


  • Jurisdictional risks.


  • Enforcement of judgments.


  • Adverse costs risks.


  • Risks for companies operating in the UAE arising out of enforcement strategies of the US Department of Justice, the Office of Foreign Assets Control, the US Securities and Exchange Commission, the UK Serious Fraud Office, the UK Financial Conduct Authority as well as other regulators and prosecutors.
