Asia Law Network together with the Law Society of Singapore, the Singapore Corporate Counsel Association and our Australian Counterparts, AlphaCreates and ASEAN Legal Tech Association, co-hosted the 2-day event. The event saw lawyers from Singapore and within the region visiting some of Singapore‘s companies and law firms to exchange ideas, share progress and fostered relationships between countries. Participants also explored opportunities working together through a series of roundtable discussions to encourage sharing various needs and potential solutions.
The entire event over two days had a total of four roundtable discussions and spanned eight locations including Facebook, Rajah and Tann just to name a few. Participants were able to discuss in depth the differences and challenges between various legal systems, saw relationships forged and cemented through the networking sessions.
Colin Laird, Director of Sales APAC, Brightflag, had this to say:
“After a brilliant couple of days I felt moved to send a note of thanks for all your efforts.
I can only begin to imagine the level of effort you have all put in to make the last 2 days run smoothly. It’s a truly unique experience that you are offering and I thought the blend of legal bodies, major brands and presentations from our group was perfect. I got so much more out of the trip than I expected; simply due to the range of experience and calibre of all involved.
You should all feel very happy with what you have achieved. I could certainly justify doing more of these and look forward to doing it again.”
This event would not be possible without the support of all hosts who shared freely and answered questions fielded by the participants. The sharing and presentations gave perspective, context and insight. We would like to extend our utmost gratitude to:
The Law Society of Singapore
Pontiac Land Group
Singapore Corporate Counsel Association
Rajah and Tann
Singapore International Commercial Courts
Singapore International Arbitration Centre
