DUBAI – Wednesday, 15 November 2017 – Afridi & Angell recently held a seminar at the Dubai Capital Club on managing litigation and enforcement risks.
The seminar, hosted by Afridi & Angell in cooperation with Jenner & Block, was attended by general counsel, legal managers, managing directors, finance directors, and risk and compliance officers.
The panel explained some key risks for UAE businesses arising out of litigation in the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States (US), and some key features of the dispute resolution landscape in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The discussion also addressed risks for companies operating in the UAE arising out of enforcement strategies of US regulators and prosecutors including the US Department of Justice, the Office of Foreign Assets Control, the US Securities and Exchange Commission, the UK Serious Fraud Office, and the UK Financial Conduct Authority, among others. The speakers offered valuable insight and strategy on how to mitigate these risks and how to deal with them when they arise.
