The In-House Community will host the legal and business conference Bringing It All Back Home – Asia and The City of London at The Law Society of England & Wales on Monday June 3, 2019.

Asia-London imageSupported by the Law Society of England & Wales, the Institute of Directors and the American Bar Association, the free to attend event is specifically for senior in-house counsel, risk experts and company directors. The invitation-only conference will feature experts from Asia in an off the record/media-free environment, providing the counsel you need to make business decisions in the world of opportunity outside of the City.

With profound change comes opportunity. The saga of Brexit has now provided the UK in general and the City in particular with a new perspective. And Asia, the Middle East and Africa present the greatest business opportunities — and potentially the greatest legal risks. For example, London’s rush to become a major trading hub for the Chinese currency is paying off with trading volumes of renminbi eclipsing those of the pound against the euro for the first time.

Incisive panel discussions and practical workshops will include high-level briefings on essential topics, including: how to avoid disputes in China and what to do when you are in one; India investment opportunities and risks; Singapore; Hong Kong as a gateway to China; sanctions risks; regulatory issues and bank resolution; Asia economic prospects; the impact of China’s Belt & Road initiative — and much more.

With our 21-year history of bringing together senior business leaders, general counsel and legal and compliance professionals, the In-House Community is proud to bring experts on Asia, the Middle East and Africa to you and other key decision-makers located in the UK.
