Why You Should Attend

2nd Annual Kingdom Legal Excellence

Laws in the region and especially the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia tend to be implemented and put into effect very quickly. More and more legislation is being passed to be in line with Vision 2030 and with this companies are aligning themselves to the Vision as well. Hence compliance frameworks need to be set to protect the organisation from penalties.

 There are a number of international and regional companies that operate in and around the Middle East, which is causing concerns around cross border contracts, disputes and litigation. Legal Counsels also need to be ready for any crisis situations and how to respond to legal risks. With the increased use of technology, the legal function wants to know how to become more tech savvy and also how to protect sensitive data on a day-to-day basis, especially in light of laws like the EU GDPR.

 At this conference we will focus on the post –implementation of VAT, how the legal department should react in a crisis situations, ADR and 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, manage risk and navigate through the compliance frameworks that your company needs to adhere to.
