Regulatory Outlook

Regulatory law affects all businesses. Osborne Clarke’s Regulatory Outlook is designed to help busy in-house lawyers, compliance professionals and directors navigate the landscape of business regulation in the UK, highlighting key current issues and dates for your diary.

We also provide a more in-depth analysis of an issue that pervades all areas of business regulation. In this edition of the Regulatory Outlook, we focus on personal liability, examining where personal liability can be imposed on directors, officers or others, under a range of regulatory regimes. As we explain, regulators increasingly see personal liability as the most effective way of driving positive change in corporate compliance, and understanding where liability can be imposed, and how risks can be mitigated, can be vital in protecting individuals in your business from prosecution.
