Focus on corporate manslaughter

Leading lawyers and insurance brokers are coming together for a seminar on corporate manslaughter and the criminalisation of health and safety.

Solicitors from the Sheffield office of international law firm Kennedys and insurance brokers Heath Lambert will be holding the joint event at Kennedys’ Ventana House offices on April 6.

The seminar follows the first successful prosecution under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007.

Partners Danny McShee and David Wright of Kennedys will consider the present state of the law and what lessons should be learned from the landmark February case.

They will be joined by Leo Marsh of Chartis Insurance who will provide essential information in relation to D&O Insurance and Entity Coverage.
