Successful FLA International Conference 2017

The FLA wishes to thank all those who attended its 2nd international conference on Friday 16 June 2017. Almost 200 people were present to hear the keynote address delivered by Sir Brian Leveson PC, President of the Queen’s Bench Division and expert panel discussions on European models of corporate liability, the UK approach to corporate co-operation, the impact of data issues on criminal law and the civil aftermath of the LIBOR and FX criminal and regulatory actions. The conference was followed by the FLA’s popular summer drinks and canapé reception at Landing 42 with stunning views overlooking the City.

On behalf of the FLA Committee, we would like to extend our gratitude to all those who participated in this year’s successful event, whether as delegates, speakers or the organising team.
