General meeting

January 14 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Rachel Speight will be speaking about the difficulties companies from ‘traditional’ mining countries face when competing in less-than-transparent jurisdictions, and actions such companies can take to defend themselves while retaining industrial competitiveness.  Rachel is a seasoned veteran of mining and infrastructure law, with particular expertise in the African continent.  She has been with Mayer-Brown since 1999 and is repeatedly commended for her commercial-mindedness and technical understanding.

The talk will cover:

  1. an introduction to the UK anti-bribery offences and some discussion of the offences in the US and other jurisdictions
  2. who is covered by this legislation
  3. consequences of non-compliance
  4. the unique risks faced by the mining industry in this area  – for example operating in high-risk jurisdictions; the level of interaction required with government officials; use of a supply chain; joint ventures; working with local partners; and the need for community projects
  5. strategies which mining companies and mining professionals can use to deal with these risks – eg risk assessment, due diligence, top-level commitment
  6. trends, such as globalisation of enforcement; growing number of jurisdictions are adopting this legislation; high profile corporates that have come under the spot light; whistle-blowing/self-reporting
  7. case study
