Why You Should Attend

12th Annual MENA Legal & Compliance

The first quarter of 2020 created a seismic wave of change for every single individual, as COVID-19 swept the globe and a worldwide pandemic was declared. Resources have been cut and processes have been disrupted as offices and legal professionals navigate through lockdowns. While this crisis has certainly caused disruption around the world, it has also catalysed General Counsels and legal function leaders to re-strategise their operations. The general counsel has to step up to ensure that ethics and compliance are considered in key strategy decisions.

Join us and find out how to harness your skills to navigate through this new normal. The time is now for Legal and Compliance officers to step up and lead the strategy, operations and governance of the organisation with the latest technology and strategy. Being one of our big annual events, this year the event will focus on:

·         Navigating the Transformative Journey

·         Manage Disputes during COVID

·         Data Privacy Health-check

·         Financial Crime Compliance

·         Optimising your Legal Department with Agile Methods

·         Post Pandemic: Key Strategies for your Legal Team

Featuring a Half-day Workshop: Contract Management & Dispute Resolution during a Crisis

Covid-19 has hit and reshaped companies, industries, and economies globally. The existing contracts for services, production, or manufacturing that had worked so well before the pandemic may now need significant modification. This workshop will equip you with the advantage needed to revamp your 2021 business strategy.
