Lewin Moderates Panel at Global Legal ConfEx 2015
113, Chancery Lane
London WC2A 1PL
Kaye Scholer London-based Tax partner Daniel Lewin moderated and participated as a panelist in “The Modern GC: Is Tax Risk Still Just a Matter for Finance and Tax?” discussion at the Global Legal ConfEx in London on September 29. He was joined by Liesl Fichardt, partner and head of tax disputes at Clifford Chance LLP, and Jason Collins, partner at Pinsent Masons LLP.
The panel considered how the “modern” general counsel in large multinational corporations should best work with the group’s finance and tax departments to manage tax risk. Specific topics included a discussion of initiatives by tax authorities to address and target key tax risks, advising the board on corporate and personal liability, new UK consultations (including proposed criminal offences), international tax structuring and reputational risk, and having an effective relationship with the tax authority.
