Directors' Risk Forum

Directors' Risk Forum

Due to last years success of this forum, The New Zealand-German Business Association together with  Hesketh Henry, JLT and HD-I Gerling invite you to a forum on Management Liability in New Zealand.

Management Liability

  •  As a director or executive of a New Zealand company, you are exposed to personal liability and legal costs
  • In a recent landmark case, the Supreme Court of New Zealand held that directors were not entitled to claim defense costs under their directors' and officers' liability insurance and would have to meet these costs out of their own pockets -$2m had already been incurred in pre-trial costs and another $4m for trial costs were estimated!

 As a director or executive of a New Zealand subsidiary of an European parent company, you will learn:

  • Common areas of liability risk for directors and executives in New Zealand: and
  • How to protect yourself against New Zealand liability.

Erich Bachmann and Kate Telford, both from Hesketh Henry, will speak to you about New Zealand liability. 

Andre Louw, from JLT will give you insights in insurance protection.

Feedback received from last years forum:

This was a great event, very informative and practical with excellent presenters. It refreshed and added to my current knowledge of director risk management and had some good takeouts I can apply in our business. Philippa Smith Lambert Legal Director TMF Group NZ
