Firm Organises Forum on Ethics and Compliance
The Udo Udoma& Belo-Osagie(UUBO) is concluding arrangements to hold its Investigations, Compliance and Ethics (ICE) Academy scheduled for December 6, 2018 in Lagos.
The academy, which is another event in UUBO’s learning and engagement series has as its theme: ‘Best Practices from the Frontline.’
In anticipation of the event, a Partner in the firm, Yinka Edu, said: “A strong culture of ethics and compliance is the foundation of a robust risk anagement programme, and we at UUBO are committed to increasing the knowledge pool for corporate entities who wish to remain ahead of the curve in terms of compliance and ethical business practices.”
According to her, the 2018 ICE Academy, designed as a highly interactive forum, would be a free-to-attend convening helmed by a carefully selected regional and international experts in the field of investigations, compliance and ethics. Commenting on the event, the Managing Partner and co-founder of the Kenya office of leading African law firm, Bowmans, Richard Harney, said: “Africa has long been viewed as a continent where carrying out business is a challenge, partly due to inefficiency and corruption. In recent years, governments across Africa have introduced more and stronger governance rules for the public and the private sectors. This event is very relevant as it demonstrates how effective internal investigations enhance the continent’s rule of law and consequently increase its attractiveness as an investment destination.”
The academy will feature a panel discussion on the theme, as well as Masterclasses on Governance, Crisis Management, Internal Investigations, Regulatory Investigations, and Anti-Bribery and Corruption.
