In many spheres, effective regulators are needed more than ever. But in a world where they have an increasing reach into both commercial and personal lives, how can they properly be held to account for their actions?
Join us as we consider: what kind of regulators work best and why; the regulatory trend towards increasing individual accountability; what can be done if regulators underperform or overreach themselves; and much more.
The panel includes:
- Tracey Crouch MP - the Member of Parliament for Chatham and Aylesford since 2010 under the Conservative Party. Tracey recently published a Fan Led Review of Football Governance and would like to see the immediate creation of a taxpayer-funded shadow regulator.
- Dr Michael Grenfell - Executive Director, Enforcement, at the Competition and Markets Authority since 2015. Michael’s role includes ensuring strategic leadership of the CMA’s enforcement portfolio, including the competition law prohibitions of anti-competitive agreements and abuse of dominance, and consumer protection laws.
- Adam Epstein - Partner, Mishcon de Reya and head of the firm's Regulatory Group. Adam leads the Firm's Financial Services Investigations and Enforcement practice, in which he has defended some of the biggest enforcement cases to emerge in the last 30 years.
