LIDW23: Pulling the Strings: Parent company liability and the attack on corporate group structures

Wednesday 17th May 2023
5pm - 6pm
1.0 CPD

Jones Day, Wilberforce Chambers and FRP, alongside special guest IBM, are pleased to invite you to the following LIDW23 member-hosted event: Pulling the Strings: Parent company liability and the attack on corporate group structures.

Corporate group structures are increasingly under attack for a variety of reasons – parent companies of global organisations are increasingly facing attempts to hold them to account before the English courts.

Join us as we explore some of the scenarios and routes of attack, consider the behaviours that are likely to increase exposure and/or mitigate risk, and discuss the challenges facing those responsible for managing the risk confronting complex, multinational organisations.


Laura Dymott (Director, Forensic Services, FRP)
Bobby Friedman (Barrister, Wilberforce Chambers)
Rhys Thomas, Partner, Global Disputes, Jones Day)
Emma Wright (Head of Legal UK and Ireland, IBM)


Sarah Batley (Of Counsel, Global Disputes, Jones Day)
