Alongside our co-hosts Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr and Clyde & Co; the In-House Community hosted our second annual Africa In-House Congress at the Raffles Hotel, Dubai on September 12.
The Congress was attended by more than 40 in-house counsel with an Africa responsibility. The day started with a plenary discussion titled ‘The Biggest Challenges in my job are…?’. The discussion was led by Rahul Prakash, Associate Publisher, Asian-mena Counsel and In-House Community; Dawda Jawara III, Legal Director, Clyde & Co; Gasant Orrie, Cape Managing Partner, Director, Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr; and Vanessa Abernethy, General Counsel, Emirates International Investment. The session discussed the pre-event survey results and challenges counsel face when doing business in Africa.
Subsequent practice area workshops included ‘Key Legal and Regulatory Trends Impacting In-House Counsel in Africa’; ‘Cross-Border Deal Structuring in Africa – Challenges and Opportunities’; and ‘Spotlight on Kenya’. We would like to thank all whose work helped make this event a success as well as the UAE chapter of the In-House Community for their attendance and support.
