Why You Should Attend

Corporate Legal Excellence

You are a legal professional who wants to achieve a flexible and forward looking legal framework for your company to attain your business goal. With all the current amendments in law enforcements and revision of regulations in the country and the need for an effective framework, legislations and full compliance, is your company’s legal department equipped for 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 the current laws and regulations had caused the trepidation of non-compliance to surface. With these, there is an urgency for legal professionals to be equipped with the latest updates of the legal function. The need of attention from analytics to controls for effective compliance is apparent, but how many are doing it right?

Join us at the Corporate Legal Excellence Conference, 13th – 14th November 2017 in Riyadh, KSA that will cover themes on Equipping your Legal Team for the VAT Implementation, Registering Trademarks and Safeguarding your Organisation’s IP Rights, the Evolving Role of Legal Counsels and Professionals, Opening the Market to Foreign Players and Perfecting M&A, JV and Cross-border Deals, Reducing Risk by Improving the Contract Drafting Process, Conforming to the Global Corporate Governance Standards, Grasping the New Laws and Regulations, Achieving Complete Compliance, 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 together legal professionals and prominent chairs within the region and around the globe to explore successes and failures, strategies and processes that consistently optimises the company’s legal framework.
