ALB Korea Corporate Compliance Forum 2020


Thursday, 2 July 2020

9:00AM - 5:00PM

Seoul, South Korea


Event Overview

The year is 2020, when regulatory compliance has more impacts on South Korean corporate operations than ever. As the country embraces its international footprint and harnesses its fair-trade practices, corporate sanctions, export control regimes, and antitrust laws weigh in as top concerns for corporate counsel. More businesses are brought under regulatory scrutiny with more record fines being imposed. Besides, the escalated trade tensions, together with global policy uncertainties pose new compliance matters to Korean corporates in a full array of colours. 

Corporate counsel and compliance leaders no longer just keep the house in order but provide a proactive engagement to steer more business opportunities for the corporate, while effectively guarding the company against unnecessary risks. 

ALB Korea Corporate Compliance Forum 2020 provides a platform for senior legal and compliance experts to share their strategies on how to better manage the ever-increasing compliance obligations in both South Korea and abroad. Participants will also get practical advice on how to effectively deal with the risks associated with expanding into markets where prevailing local practices are at odds with international norms.
