III International Conference on Comparative Law, 16-17 February, Warsaw


The European Law Students Association ELSA is organising a conference devoted to international corporations and investments in the context of regulations of various jurisdictions. Aleksandra Stępniewska will lead the workshops on criminal liability of corporations running their businesses in France.

On 17 February, Wardyński & Partners will host participants of the third international comparative law conference. Aleksandra Stępniewska, partner in the Business Crime practice, will lead the workshops “Corporate criminal liability in France – the risks and duties facing corporations and their managers under French criminal law and anti-corruption policy”.

The workshop will be based on a case study involving a Polish company, the parent of a French subsidiary, prosecuted in France. The case study will be the departure point for a presentation of the rules of corporate criminal liability in France, defence opportunities and procedural issues, including the international context of criminal investigations. The workshop will include a discussion of the rules on liability of company directors and a recently introduced obligation to implement internal anti-corruption compliance programs.
