Conor Quigley QC: Expert on state aid investigations
Multinational companies are increasingly concerned by the European Commission's state investigations into tax, according to leading barrister Conor Quigley QC. Mr Quigley, who has advised several multinationals on state aid investigations, says the cases are also of interest to their competitors who are keeping a close eye on decisions such as Apple and Starbucks. The two companies have been ordered to pay billions of Euro in recovery of foregone taxation as a result of perceived preferential treatment by the tax authorities. Mr Quigley will discuss the current state of play over such investigations as well as how Brexit will impact such issues at the GC Futures Summit 2017 tomorrow at 1 New Change, London.
The event will also look at other current areas of concern for corporates - from the implementation of GDPR and its impact on data assets to dealing with reputational issues. The event will also discuss the latest legal technology initiatives and their their impact on corporate legal departments as well as the role of ethics and why general counsel must be involved in cultural transformation at a company where Kate Cheetham, general counsel of Lloyds Bank, will discuss how she set up a diversity programme which triggered a number of corporate changes.
