Why You Should Attend

9th Annual MENA Legal Counsel

The GCC Regions have been plagued with a range of instability from economical and political standpoint and this is causing legal professionals to have a more dynamic role to protect their organisation. With the current external threats, legal professionals need to be more flexible and pre-empt any risk that arise. Laws in the region tend to be implemented very quickly and put into effect very swiftly, which makes the compliance ever changing and a continual process, hence compliance frameworks need to be set up to manage the various compliances and protect the organisation from fines.

There are a number of international and regional companies that operate in and around the region, which is causing more and more concern around cross border contract and internal litigation. With the geopolitical risks the region is facing, is placing companies are not sure how to move forward with minimal losses.

At this conference we will be focusing on the new VAT implementation, cross border litigation and we will have a workshop on cross border contracts. Join us to hear from leaders in the legal field, who will be sharing their expertise on the evolving role of legal counsels and how to overcome and manage restructuring and navigating through the compliances that your companies need to adhere to.
