Latest seminar on The Central Bank’s Enforcement Processes

AUTHOR(S): Joe Beashel, Bríd Munnelly
PRACTICE AREA GROUP: Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution, Financial Institutions, Regulatory and Investigations, Regulatory Risk Management and Compliance
DATE: 10.11.2011

Joe Beashel and Bríd Munnelly held a breakfast seminar in our offices on Thursday, 10 November 2011 entitled "The Central Bank's Enforcement Processes - Practical Experiences".

Due to the increasingly large number of administrative sanctions being taken by the Central Bank, which are resulting in settlement agreements featuring ever larger fines, this seminar explored the ongoing strategy being pursued by the Central Bank’s reinvigorated Enforcement Directorate. In addition, new legislation proposes to double the maximum fines which can be imposed and yet more new enforcement powers are to be given to the Central Bank.

Directors, management, compliance and in-house legal personnel will need to be mindful of the Central Bank’s enforcement powers and in particular the administrative sanctions procedure when dealing with issues now and into the future.

The speakers were Joe Beashel, a partner in the Financial Institutions Group  and Head of the Regulatory Risk Management and Compliance Group at Matheson, along with Bríd Munnelly, partner and Head of the Regulatory and Investigations Group, which is part of the Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department at Matheson.

If you have any queries in relation to the seminar, please contact Joe Beashel or Bríd Munnelly.
