Mission Our mission is to ‘Empower In-House Counsel’ to more easily fulfill their ethical, legal, compliance and business responsibilities and Improve Legal & Ethical Compliance for the Benefit of All. We do this by providing a variety of platforms for professional discourse, the building of supporting relationships and the sharing of knowledge for the benefit of anyone fulfilling an in-house legal or compliance function. Relationship Over the last 18 years, the Community has been built and maintained through our 17 annual In-House Congress and Symposium events, Asian-mena Counsel magazine and e-updates, including the Weekly Briefing, and online at (www.inhousecommunity.com).
In-House Community Thought Leaders The In-House Community Thought Leaders are a select group of respected senior in-house practitioners who provide us with guidance on issues related to the function and practice of being an in-house counsel for our events, the magazine and for the In-House Community as a whole. Click here for their details. The In-House Community Corporate Counsel Credo Created in conjunction with a number of our Thought Leaders, the Corporate Counsel Credo has eventuated as a result of various discussions at our In-House Community gatherins, where counsel suggested that they would find such a document useful in meeting their ethical, legal and business commitments and responsibilities within their organisations.

“Creating a business focusing on the ‘sell side’ (ie external counsel) of the legal service value chain is relatively easy and has been the norm for decades Rallying the ‘buy side’ (namely in-house counsel) to lead value creation is much more challenging. The In-House Community™ is unique in that regard. As a ‘lifer’ in-house counsel, I am excited at the In-House Community’s potential in helping us to address this challenge.”
