Aperio Intelligence cordially invites you to our forthcoming webinar on 24 November 2021 - Upheaval in Germany: navigating redefined corporate responsibility in the post-Merkel era.
Angela Merkel’s leadership of Germany is drawing to a close, after a more than a decade and a half, with her party, the Christian Democrats, in a state of semi-disarray. While in September the Social Democrats emerged as the leading party in the federal election, as of early November, complex negotiations between three parties to form a coalition government continue, which are unlikely to conclude much before Christmas.
All the while, fallout from tumultuous developments within corporate Germany persists. In particular, the Dieselgate and Wirecard scandals exposed the fallacy that the country is free of business risk. The German financial regulator BaFin has been subject to a consequent shake-up, and new or pending legislation such as the Supply Chain Act and the Corporate Liability Act will impose formal obligations on both domestic and international corporates.
To contextualise these developments and to provide guidance on navigating a new German business environment, Aperio Intelligence is delighted to invite you to a webinar with our expert panel:
• Vendeline von Bredow: European business and finance correspondent for the Economist in Berlin
• Isabelle Kilian: Senior Associate, Clyde & Co Europe LLP, Dusseldorf office
• Eberhard Witthoff: Head of Claims Dept. – Asia-Pacific, North America, Global Clients and Cyber Claims at Munich Re.
This event will be chaired by Alexander Kottke, Head of Western Europe at Aperio Intelligence.
