Six Pump Court presents the third in our series of Environmental and Public Law Seminars to be held this year.

Wednesday 12th July – ‘Piercing the Veil’ Incorporation and Liability for Environmental Damage: Widening the Net

There is an ever-widening trend to try to make parent and other linked organisations liable for the actions of their subsidiaries and associated entities, both in a criminal and in a civil context. The issue of who can incur liability gives rise to important considerations as to how businesses and corporate officers might guard against the risk of traditionally unexpected financial obligations or penalties, both collectively and individually. This seminar will consider ways in which the law is applied to achieve punitive and compensatory outcomes in the courts. We will also look at prospective developments, including the relevant principles that are applied to determine liability in other jurisdictions.
