NEW: Forum legal expert webinar series

We’re delighted to invite you to the first in our series of legal expert webinar series for Forum members over the next year to support CEOs, Directors and senior leaders with updated legal precedent and opinion on specific case law and health and safety issues.

Whakaari - and what this case means for CEOs, Directors and senior leaders in New Zealand

In our first one-hour virtual session we’ll hear from Grant Nicholson, Partner at Anthony Harper, who represented White Island Tours Limited in relation to charges under the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA) 2015 following the live volcano on Whakaari/White Island in December 2019.
 
We’ll also hear from Garth Gallaway, Partner at Chapman Tripp, who represented the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GNS) in charges that related to the eruption and field trips GNS staff took before the Whakaari eruption in 2019.
 
Both Garth and Grant will talk through their insights from their respective cases relating to the eruption of Whakaari, and their reflections on the implications they see for businesses from this significant case. There will also be opportunities to ask questions throughout.
 
Register here via Microsoft Teams for the first in this legal expert webinar series.

You should receive a confirmation email with calendar invite attached, once registered.
