The Middle East beckons with its competitive, tax-free salaries; career advancement opportunities; large expat population; cosmopolitan lifestyle; and emerging markets among other factors, and the legal sector is certainly not immune to its charms. Indeed, the Middle East has been a dynamic and forever changing legal market. This year in particular has seen an increase in the number of opportunities, compounded by added investment in upcoming projects such as the Expo 2020 at Dubai, World Cup 2022 at Qatar, and Saudi Vision 2030.
In sync with the mandate of Legal Era Magazine to expand footprint in and serve as development platform in promising markets, we are proud to present the inaugural Corporate Counsel Summit Middle East on 05th Sept, 2019, at Le Meridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Center.
The Summit will bring together leading senior and general counsel to discuss current business-legal trends and the challenges ahead to deliver vital insights across a range of industries, thus stimulating growth and development. With the role of in-house counsel having enlarged to encompassnurture of the overall growth and wellbeing of organizations, especially against the backdrop of increasing cross-border transactions and business volatility, and changing regulatory concerns, the importance of legal has grown manifold to equal if not surpass that of top management.
Coming at a time like this, the Summit will see informative and interactive sessions on topics such as GC as strategic advisor to the Board of Directors, setting up of international corporate governance, developing industry-leading compliance, the interplay of legal and emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, block chain etc., combating cybercrime and protection of data privacy, trends in inbound and outbound M&A, transparency and diversity in international arbitration, birth and acceleration of the fintech ecosystem, changing landscape of dispute resolution (ADR technology), and competition law among others.
As Legal Era Magazine’s maiden foray into the Middle East, we invite active participation from all our stakeholders in making this event a great success.
