General Counsels and senior in-house lawyers from a range of industries in Hong Kong recently attended the DLA Piper employment roundtable discussion to gather tips and exchange ideas in the handling of corporate whistleblowing complaints. This marked the second legal practice seminar jointly hosted between DLA Piper and leading Asia legal recruitment firm Star Anise.

Led by partner and head of Employment, Asia, Julia Gorham and Consultant employment specialist Anita Lam, the roundtable discussion drew on DLA Piper’s experience in assisting multinational corporations in providing practical tips in handling whistleblowing complaints. Guests were able to learn of the best practices for whistleblowing policies and reporting, to understand the difficult issues in dealing with complaints and how to implement a strategy to deal with whistleblowing situations. 

Star Anise Legal’s Managing Director, Annie Tang, said, “We are delighted to have jointly hosted this highly informative event and it’s part of our commitment to add value to our clients in promoting training to the legal practice industry.  Julia and Anita are truly engaging speakers and really helped generate a dynamic and fascinating discussion. All the guests were highly engaged in sharing and hearing the experiences of their peers on this delicate issue of corporate whistleblowing.”
