wearing two hats – Richard Barlow delves into the topic of conflicts of interest

17 May 2019

We caught up with Richard Barlow ahead of the public and admin law seminar to understand more around managing the legal risks of conflicts of interest within organisations. Richard explains how the existence of certain conflicts of interest can be managed through ‘functional separation’ and identifies the principles established in the Seaport Investments Ltd case.

Watch our highlights video to hear more about the types of challenges public bodies are facing and how we’ve been working with our clients to establish some principles for addressing conflicts of interest as they arise.
