The Building on our 15 Episodes Investigation Series we concluded in 2021, in which we covered a wide range of practical issues that come up in investigations, we are now inviting you to join sessions on specific developments and areas of risk that are on the minds of risk managers and require forethought today. The Series is designed for legal and compliance as well as interested business leaders who want to invest 50 minutes every month to these topics and come away with ideas and practical guidance.

Speakers include partners and associates from our Swiss offices but also other offices worldwide, depending on the topic.

While we initiate and moderate the series, our vision is for the Meeting Point to be a platform for you. We encourage you to ask questions via the chat function during any Meeting Point. We encourage you to follow-up bilaterally with us following any Meeting Point. This is for you.

Helping clients and their businesses navigate challenging situations is our passion and we gladly engage with you in relation to any issue or concern you may have.
