Why You Should Attend

3rd Annual Legal Counsel

You are a legal professional who wants to achieve a flexible and forward looking legal framework for your company to attain business goal. With all the current amendments in law enforcement and revision of regulations in the country, the need for an effective framework, legislations and full compliance, is your company's legal department equipped to withstand the tides? Do you have a strong legal and in-house counsel team? The increased pressure in exercising your duties has highlighted the importance of possessing top notch skill sets and up to date knowledge about the laws and regulations.

Changes to current laws and regulations have caused the trepidation of non-compliance to surface. With these, there is an urgency for legal professionals to be equipped with the latest updates. The need for attention from analytics to control compliance is apparent, but how many are doing it right?

Join us at the Corporate Legal Excellence Conference, 19th to 20th March 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia that will cover themes on the evolving role of legal counsels and professionals, equipping your legal team for the advancing e-commerce environment, scrutinising the importance of full compliance to the Companies Act 2016, fully preparing for the enforcement of Personal Data Protection Act, registering trademarks and safeguarding your organisation's IP rights, opening the market to foreign players and perfecting M&A, JV and cross-border deals, reducing risk by improving the contract drafting process, and a half-day workshop that focuses on legal drafting and ADR. These key themes will be delivered through interactive sessions such as case studies, panel discussions, think tank sessions and roundtable discussions. This conference has been strategically created to bring legal professionals and prominent chairs within the region and around the globe together to examine successes, failures, new strategies and processes to optimise a company's legal framework. Do not miss the opportunity to network with legal professionals and learn from our esteemed line-up of speakers from world renowned organisations!
