In this issue, we turn our focus to energy and natural resources. We take a look at the impact of the pandemic and war on energy production and projects in the Middle East, India, China and Southeast Asia. We also hear about climate change disclosure and staying abreast of regulatory reform in China (Schroeder), and about Thailand’s energy transition, reshaping its energy market from one based on fossil fuels to renewable sources (Chandler MHM). We further hear from our In-House Community “Energy & Natural Resource” Legal Team of the Year (2021) winner, Royal Golden Eagle (together with Rose Kong), as they reimagine “business as usual” in the area of sustainability.
However, not all moves to sustainability in the legal profession need an office and desk – Hong Kong Legal Walk chair, Angel Wong, gives us some tips on walking with purpose.
In the issue…
Jessada Sawatdipong of Chandler MHM takes us a tour of his career thus far – from imagining a legal career in government following the footsteps of his father and two elder brothers to finding a permanent home in private practice as the co-managing partner of Chandler MHM. He shares some advice for MPs and young lawyer alike to stay curious and never stop learning.
Dr Vincent Ng shares some insights into his 20+ year career at AEON, particularly while General Manager/Head of Legal, and the philosophies that have seen both him and the business succeed. He makes a case for being guided by passion in work, with successes serving as motivation to work harder and less encouraging experiences serving as fodder for self-improvement.
We also cover last month’s top deals, partner level moves, and latest legal industry news.
