Jersey directors: yet more personal responsibility - Seminar

28 Sep 2015

JFSC directions, disqualification, criminal and civil penalties: there are a plethora of Jersey domestic provisions covering the ways in which sanctions of this nature can be imposed on Jersey directors.

When it comes to disqualification and financial compensation, Jersey based directors are also faced with the long arm of the law from other jurisdictions, most recently as a result of provisions contained in the English Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015.

David Cadin, a partner in Bedell Cristin's litigation department and an advocate with huge experience of regulatory issues, will host a panel of experts in which these developments will be summarised and the implications discussed.

Robert Gardner, a partner in the litigation department at Bedell Cristin, will summarise applicable Jersey provisions.

Malcolm Davis-White QC and Richard Ritchie of XXIV Old Buildings will speak about new English provisions which will impact on Jersey resident directors. Malcolm and Richard are among the most renowned and influential experts on directors' disqualification at the English Bar. Malcolm, appointed to the panel of Senior Decision Makers of the GFSC, deals with Guernsey disciplinary cases. Richard is standing Counsel to DBIS.

Barry Faudemer, Head of Enforcement at the Jersey Financial Services Commission, will discuss the implications of recent developments in Jersey and the United Kingdom in this area.

This is designed to be a seminar of importance for all those who provide directorship services and those who operate in the regulated financial services sector in Jersey.
