Autumn Perspectives Webinar: Human Rights risk management for financial institutions – 1 December

Financial institutions integrate human rights risk management into their business operations, products and services in differing ways. As the demands for disclosure of practice and performance expand, and due diligence expectations crystallise into legal requirements, the challenges for institutions are accelerating. Given the differing approaches to regulation that are emerging in Europe, the UK, the US and beyond, it is timely to examine emerging practice, including the interplay between human rights and climate change and the do’s and don’ts of building on existing governance frameworks to address compliance risk in areas such as anti-corruption.

This webinar will take place on Tuesday 1 December from 5:00pm – 6:00pm GMT.

If you are a client of the firm and would like to join, please register your interest by contacting perspectives@cliffordchance.com.

Insights on Derivatives: Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT): Key legal issues and practical challenges – 2 December 2020

Further to the recent publication by Clifford Chance together with ISDA and R3 of the paper "Private International Law Aspects of Smart Derivatives Contracts Utilizing Distributed Ledger Technology: New York Law" on this call we shall discuss key legal issues from a private international law perspective relating to the introduction of Distributed Ledger Technology into derivatives trading relationships as considered in that paper. In addition we will consider an earlier paper published in January, also by Clifford Chance together with ISDA and R3, which explored the topic from the perspectives of English and Singaporean law. We will also discuss contrasting approaches to using DLT to facilitate settlement and the range of legal issues which need to be addressed. We will highlight the key challenges in addressing these issues in a practical context, including the need to balance regulatory expertise across a range of jurisdictions with a detailed understanding of the existing frameworks.

This call will take place on Wednesday 2 December at 1:30 pm (UK) / 2:30 pm (CET) / 8:30 am (US).
