Mourant Ozannes and QEB Hollis Whiteman will host their first joint Financial Services and Regulatory Forum at the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel in Jersey on Monday 12 June.
The forum is aimed at Jersey financial services providers who want to keep on top of the latest regulatory developments and issues for the short to medium term future. The forum will feature guest speakers from the States of Jersey and the JFSC, as well as industry experts from Mourant Ozannes and QEB Hollis Whiteman.
The forum will be a first in Jersey for London-based QEB Hollis Whiteman Chambers, which is regarded both nationally and internationally as a leading set in the areas of general grime, business crime, professional regulation and discipline and intellectual property. Philip Evans QC from QEB Hollis Whiteman said: “this forum provides us with an excellent opportunity to present and discuss how recent changes in the law on the mainland might impact on the financial services world in Jersey and to detail some relevant regulatory experience of use to those dealing with these questions on a day to day basis”. Topics that will be covered at the forum include; implementing international transparency standards, JFSC supervision and focus for 2017, important developments in the law of tax evasion, outsourcing, personal accountability in regulatory proceedings and sanctions, amongst others. Mourant Ozannes partner, Justin Harvey-Hills, said: "In today's regulatory climate it's essential that Jersey businesses stay on top of the latest legislative developments and impending changes in, and beyond, the UK and EU. This involves ensuring that they know what they are collectively and individually accountable for, and that they have the correct policies and procedures in place to address potential compliance risks. "This forum will serve as a platform for us to share vital knowledge and advice which will benefit local directors and compliance professionals, with the valuable perspective of specialist corporate and business crime barristers at one of London's leading Chambers".
The forum will run from 2:00pm to 5:00pm and is free for people to attend. Anyone wishing to register should contact Melissa Crowther at firstname.lastname@example.org
