ACT South West Regional Group: Legal issues for treasurers
12 June 2017,
TLT LLP, One Redcliff Street, Bristol, BS1 6TP

Legal contracts are an everyday part of a treasurer’s life. They can absorb time, fuel legal fees, and leave you wondering if you are exposed to some unfortunate event. Jon Stewart, banking partner and Nathan Williams, tax partner at law firm TLT LLP in Bristol, will share digestible insights and tips to help you look for common issues in loan docs and other financial contracts. What is the market position on negative LIBOR? Does the sanction wording mean we can’t do anything with some countries? Is there an angle on BEPS we are missing? Questions on a general basis will also be welcome.
