Asia: The Legal Hub Where In-House Counsel Can Foster Business Growth; How?

Asia is the heart of the legal and business sectors globally & the role of the in-house counsel is rapidly evolving to keep pace with the changing needs of the businesses that they support. An in-house counsel’s job is never to sit back and watch a company grow—it’s to ask how to make that growth continue and expand.

This fast-paced session will offer 20-30 opportunities of live stories from in-house counsel participants, who will share two to three-minute case studies from their own experiences that how their in-house counsel job profiles bring up the business growth for their respective organizations. They will also share the challenges they face and how do they find the solutions. Do they partner with law firms and service providers to solve their issues – if yes; to what extent it remains intact.

You can look forward to digging into the experiences, new challenges and resolutions shared by in-house counsel participants at the ConfEx.
