About the Webinar

Never before has there been so much scrutiny of businesses and directors by the regulators, plus constant legislative changes for businesses to keep up with.  Post-Covid we are seeing a highly regulated, consumer protectionist environment and many businesses and boards are in the spotlight for getting it wrong (or worse, investigated by the regulators).  

Now is the time to catch up on regulatory changes and ensure your business is in the best position possible to protect your interests and avoid adverse attention from business regulators like ASIC, the ACCC and NSW Fair Trading.

Featuring leaders from our 2020 Commercial Team of The Year, this free webcast will feature live discussion on key legislative changes affecting business operations and contracts, boards and business owners. Sign up now to join us remotely for this insightful session.
