Global Legal Confex 2016 – Celebrating The Unparalleled Growth of Singapore’s Legal Services
Summary: Events 4 Sure organized the Global Legal Conference cum Exhibition in Singapore.
Off late Singapore’s Legal Services have shown some tremendous progress on the economic front making it a key enabler for growth in many other sectors of the nation’s economy. For the past six years, the nation’s economy has registered a growth of about 7 percent per year. As a result of this, the share of Asia-Pacific region in the legal market is also speculated to show unparalleled growth in the coming years. Given the fact that Singapore is rather well-positioned on the map, it is only a matter of time that the nation will become a legal hub. This assumption is fairly backed by the nation’s business-friendly legal system and the subsequent rise in demand for top-tier legal representation.
It was in light of these facts, that Events 4 Sure conceptualized the Global Legal ConfEx in Singapore, wherein an optimal platform was offered for elaborate discussions on thought provoking ideas and best practices from the legal industry on subjects like Litigation, Intellectual Property, Disputes, Compliance, Risk Management and International Arbitration amongst others.
The concept behind the event was to offer a unique platform to the participants belonging to the legal fraternity of various parts of the world to understand the nuances of different subjects pertaining to the legal framework of Singapore and exactly how it may and will affect that of other nations.
Like any other event, even the Global ConfEx began with a thought provoking and invigorating keynote speech. The first speaker for the day was Mr. George Lim, SC who assumes the revered position of the Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors at the Singapore International Mediation Centre. A senior counsel, he elaborated on the interesting subject of ‘Mediation – Adding value to the Business Community’. Next to grace the dais was the Senior Managing Director, Forensic and Litigation Consulting, Singapore, Mr. Jarrod Baker. Recognized as one of the leading forensic accountants in Who’s Who Legal: Investigations 2016, he enlightened the audience with the intricacies of The FIFA Scandal and what lessons this scandal held for the corporate world. Last but not the least, it was Mr. Jeff Bullwinkel to thrill the participants through an exhilarating speech on the subject of ‘Putting Trust at the Core of Technology’. The Director of Legal & Corporate Affairs at the Microsoft Corporation, Singapore, Mr. Bullwinkel managed perfectly well, to keep the audience engaged almost with a contagious curiosity.
Held on 25th of February, 2016 & celebrated at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre, this Legal ConfEx can be called a huge success; thanks to the humongous numbers of participants pouring in right from the start of the day. With an overall count of 250 key lawyer participants and over 100 in house lawyers, along with 50+ exhibitors and as many as 35 bar associations and media partners, the event gave away a decent opportunity to one and all present to interact with each other on an informal as formal basis.
