In today’s dynamic world, it has become almost quintessential for the corporate leadership to work hand-in-hand with the in-house legal department. For all we know, this can go a great way in helping the leaders of an organization aptly anticipate the forthcoming legal and regulatory obstacles. The Legal & IP ConfEx held in Dubai, aimed at pondering upon the various facets of this partnership between the two entities which are key to any organization’s growth and progress. Then again, this Confex also concentrated on various IP laws in the Middle East and their direct and indirect implications on various businesses.
This ConfEx began with an introductory session, which helped the participants ease into the ambience, and get familiar with each other. The event was then carried forward with a keynote speech. The first speaker of the day was Mr. Moutaz Abdullat, General Legal Counsel, Ferrero Middle East, UAE. The next to grace the dais with his dynamic presence was Mr Dale Waterman, Senior Corporate Attorney, External and Legal Affairs, from Microsoft Corporation, UAE. They both expressed their well-founded thoughts on the subjects of “Welcome to the Middle East: Top Legal & IP Trends in 2016, Predictions for 2017”. After their respective speeches, the participants were given the opportunity to raise any queries or doubts regarding the same.
