Legal Week's Corporate Governance and Risk Forum


Matthew Nicklin QC will be speaking at Legal Week’s Corporate Governance and Risk Forum on the 21 November 2013, Park Lane Hotel, London.

Matthew’s session at 11am is entitled “Trial by media… the risk to reputation”.
In this age of 24/7 news and viral social media content, negative press coverage can wipe millions off market cap in a matter of hours. What can be done to manage and protect your organisation’s reputation? How can user-generated content be managed? We also ask whether the Defamation Act 2013 has achieved the right balance between freedom of speech and protection of reputation, or whether the ‘serious harm’ threshold test will be too a difficult burden of proof to fulfil.

For more information, please see full details of the conference programme on the Legal Week website.
