TRANSFORMING THE FAMILY JUSTICE SYSTEM: RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE COMMITTEE FOR FAMILY JUSTICE
- A note from Indranee Rajah S.C., Senior Minister of State for Law

As all family lawyers know, family cases are far less about legal issues than they are about emotional ones. Clients who are otherwise rational and logical can, in family disputes, take intransigent positions on matters which, viewed objectively, should never be brought to court but end up being litigated anyway due to the inability to separate the legal issues from the emotional ones.

From Legacy to Digital


Date           :  Thursday, 18 September 2014

Time         :  12.00 - 2.00pm

Venue       :  TBC

Speakers :  Mr Neil McInnes
                      Mr Bryan Tan

The Digital economy will not ignore the many brick and mortar companies we now have. This seminar discusses many of the challenges facing companies as they move from their existing platforms and IT processes to new technologies. It is intended to cover various issues ranging from interoperability of systems and applications, cloud, data protection and other regulatory concerns and renegotiation of existing contracts. Technology also raises specific issues relating to anti-bribery & competition law compliance. Technology companies typically have commission-based sales forces which increases the propensity to skirt anti-bribery rules – how do general counsels implement programs to keep up with the myriad of rules operating in a multi-jurisdiction setting? Our experiences in Singapore and in other parts of the world will be used in this interactive seminar by Bryan Tan and Neil McInnes.

Fraud Investigations - The First 48 hours


Date           :  Wednesday, 1 October 2014

Time         :  12.00 - 2.00pm

Venue       :  Training Room, Intellioffices, Level 3, 146 Robinson Road, Singapore 068909

Speakers :  Mr Jason Liew

When a potential fraud surfaces, how a company behaves in the first 48 hours is crucial. Inappropriate decisions at this stage can lead to wasted time and effort, lost or damaged evidence, incomplete findings and the need to re-perform parts of the investigation. Dealing effectively with fraud can mean the difference between the continued growth of your business and substantial damage to its reputation and financial position. This presentation is an examination of the various factors to be taken into account when managing an internal investigation, developing a suitable plan of action and how to collect evidence, and conduct interviews. Jason will also share real life case studies to illustrate the challenges faced when undertaking investigations.
