Andrew Rainey, Laurence Lieberman, David McCluskey and Nimisha Agarwal of Taylor Wessing speak about their experience of acting for Board members and advising them on how to mitigating the risk of individual personal liability

Those who sit on Boards face an increasing array of challenges in today’s corporate environment in the UK. NEDs are not distinguished from executive directors with respect to their duties in company law, and they are expected to have a detailed understanding of the business, despite not being involved in the day to day running of the company. NEDs also undertake a range of corporate governance roles including managing risk, assessing executive performance and setting remuneration policy, as well as providing independent judgement and input into strategic direction, whilst at the same time declaring and avoiding any conflicts of interest.

The session is aimed to be practical and draw upon Taylor Wessing's experiences from across a range of sectors, including life sciences and tech.

Immediately following Taylor Wessing’s presentation we will be hosting drinks, so please also join us to meet other executives and NEDs operating in the Cambridge Cluster and share your experiences.
