Corporate Counsel Forum Hong Kong 2016 will take place on Thursday 23 June in the heart of Hong Kong at the Renaissance Harbour View Hotel. Last year's forum attracted an audience of more than 300 general counsel.
Legal Week is delighted to bring you the fifth annual Corporate Counsel Forum Africa. We are pleased to present a further opportunity to meet with peers and industry experts from across Africa to discuss the evolving role of in-house counsel in today's demanding business world.
Hosted by Legal Week (organisers of The British Legal Awards) and the Corporate Lawyers Association of South Africa (CLASA), these inaugural awards will celebrate legal excellence in Africa and are open to in-house legal teams and law firms operating throughout the continent.
Commercial Litigation & Arbitration Forum is tailored to address the concerns of all commercial litigators. Targeting both in-house and private practice litigators, this year's forum will provide the perfect opportunity for practitioners from across Europe to network, share ideas and debate. #LWCLAF
