On 17 May, Stibbe will host a Masterclass for the members of Nederlands Genootschap van Bedrijfsjuristen (NGB), the Dutch association of general counsels,  about administrative supervision.  Anna Collignon, Rein Wesseling, Muriël Rosing and Tom Barkhuysen from Stibbe will discuss the relevant supervisory issues from various legal perspectives.

Administrative supervisors and enforcement authorities

At some point, companies will be confronted with administrative supervisors and enforcement authorities such as the Dutch Data Protection Authority, the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets or the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate. In these circumstances, what should  companies do? What is the legal position of the company? What do the authorities expect from companies? How can companies maintain a working relationship with the supervisors? During the Masterclass, the four lawyers from Stibbe will answer such questions and provide tips and tricks to prevent problems with the authorities and on what to do when something goes wrong and the authority decides to take action. The Masterclass will end with an interactive case study in which all topics  are brought together.

The speakers:

Anna Collignon: Anna specialises in the complex areas of environmental and enforcement law. Her clients include leading companies in the energy and industry/chemical sector. Her work includes providing advice to and litigating on behalf of these companies on cases involving environmental and/or compliance issues. This includes large expansion projects of e.g. chemical plants and quarries, and advising on major accidents or other incidents.

Rein Wesseling:  Rein regularly assists companies in their dealings with national courts, national competition authorities, the EU Commission and the European courts. His expertise covers all areas of EU and competition law including cartels, joint ventures, abuse of dominance and state aid law.

With her extensive knowledge, she advises high-profile companies as well as their directors and/or employees in complex matters related to fraud (fraude), corruption (omkoping), money laundering (witwassen) and other (economic) offences.
