Future of Consumer APAC: EP3 - Advertising and online trends in China
Cathy Liu shares some recommendations for brands doing business in China following the latest online promotion and advertising trends, beginning with tightening regulation of the booming livestreaming and KOLs (influencers) industry, underlining the importance of honest representation (including account profile, audience comments and video settings) and a crack-down on false claims in advertising. Geopolitical tensions and related social media boycotts are also playing an increasing role in the enforcement of Advertising Law with regulators investigating brands for undermining Chinese national dignity and interests.
The Third Wheel Podcast (ESG In Australia): Episode 18
Tim Stutt and Kathryn Pacey are joined by Dr Chris Greig, Princeton University to discuss the energy transition, industry decarbonisation, technology and investment. Dr Greig shares the origin story and highlights of Net-Zero America, the research project that not only quantifies but visually displays five distinct technological pathways, using known technologies, by which the United States could decarbonize its entire economy by 2050. He breaks down the four make-or-break critical issues for energy transition: (1) the unprecedented speed and scale of infrastructure to be built; (2) a flow of risk capital never seen before; (3) maintaining the social contract with communities; and (4) major workforce mobilisation and a just transition for workers. Dr Greig underlines the importance of Australia’s strong ambition and domestic emissions targets to achieve speed and scale. As for achieving net zero and becoming a major exporter of low emission energy - you won’t have to wait long for the Net-Zero Australia study findings to be released in August 2022.

Cameron Whittfield and Peggy Chow discuss the latest cybersecurity trends for consumer-facing companies including external threats which may include working with third parties and complex supply chains through to the malicious targeting of companies with ransomware, current affairs and social engineering, the cryptocurrency marketplace and geopolitical factors. They emphasise the importance of internal stakeholders speaking the same language when it comes to the intersection of technology and legal risks – and the oversight now expected of board members. The complexity of cybersecurity breach notifications and assessment is also covered in the context of differing requirements of regulators and across jurisdictions.
Pension disputes EP2: How can trustees protect themselves against personal liability?
In this latest podcast from the Herbert Smith Freehills' pension team, Professional Support Consultant, Tim Smith is joined by Dan Saunders, a Senior Associate in our pension disputes team. In this episode, Dan considers:
• the scope of trustees potential liability if they are found to have committed a breach of trust;
• the protections available to trustees in this scenario, including the effect of exoneration clauses, indemnities and insurance;
• whether the recent decision in the USS case opens the door for more claims to be brought against directors of a corporate trustee in their personal capacity; and
• how trustees can check what protections they have in place under their scheme.
