Gain knowledge on the varieties of constellations in which corruption can occur and learn which direct and indirect risks you need to keep in check.

    Register now!  – separate booking available.

    1. “What’s your contract worth? Is it valid and enforceable?” 7. + 8. May 2015
    2. “The dangers of alleged corruption in arbitral/civil law proceedings” – 8. + 9. May 2015

    Companies are now aware of criminal law consequences of corruption – with high penalties and debarment from future business.

    However the civil law consequences – your contract might be null and void, non-payment by the buyer, resulting in problems of financial liquidity, reduction in rating, non-enforceability of a contract, high legal costs, possible bankruptcy are seldom discussed. Furthermore a losing competitor might sue for damages.

    Gain knowledge on the varieties of constellations in which corruption can occur and learn which risks you need to keep in check.
