A decade of post-crisis banking litigation – lessons, reflections and fault lines

A panel of barristers, judges and senior in-house litigation counsel will review some of the most prominent litigation affecting financial service companies in the ten years since the start of the global financial crisis. What has been learnt from Lehman, the RBS rights issue, Lloyds/HBOS cases? What impact have they had on governance, regulation, compliance and insurance to prevent the same issues arising again?

Having the right dispute resolution strategy

Coffee break

The Financial List – efficient, effective, overworked?

From inception to enforcement, one specialist judge hears an entire case in the Rolls Building. More than three years on from the establishment of the Financial List, does it deliver as promised? This debate will feature a judge sitting in the Financial List and senior private practice experts.

Financial services disputes: where do we go from here?

Just weeks before the 29 March Brexit Day, a panel will analyse the agreements on regulatory co-operation between the PRA and EU27 supervisors. Are they adequate and how will they work? Beyond transitional arrangements, will the UK follow or depart from significant EU regulations… and with what impact?

Are you cyber ready for the regulators?

A panel of private practice, in-house and data security experts will examine regulatory enforcements brought against financial services businesses for cyber breaches. How are GCs managing their risks in preparing for these actions and what does the rise of cyber crime mean for reputational and business risk management and insurance?

Running an enforcement agency – imagine a blank slate

A panel of in-house and private practice specialists will outline what they would do differently were they running the FCA, the PRA, the SFO or the NCA. How could these enforcement agencies be improved? What recommendations would outside experts make to enhance regulatory and investigative powers?
