Prior to Counsels of the Year Awards in the evening, the In-House Community hosted the In-House-Outbound Forum on May 30 at the HKIAC. The forum brought together about 50 senior in-house counsel in Hong Kong — mostly representing large multinational corporations. Over the course of two hours, the attendees were updated on the legal landscape in four jurisdictions, namely, India, the Philippines, UAE and Vietnam. The forum started with a passionate presentation on the changing regulatory regime and growing opportunities in India by Vaibhav Kakkar, partner at L&L Partners. Emerico O De Guzman, managing partner of ACCRALaw, followed with his presentation on recently liberalised areas for foreign investment and an employment law update from the Philippines. After a short break, Christopher Gunson, partner from UAE law firm AMERELLER took the stage to talk about various legal systems in the Middle East and how they have evolved, as well as touching on the Dubai Free Zones and dispute resolution in the region. The last presentation of the forum was given by Justin Gisz, partner from Vietnam law firm Frasers Law Company, who gave the attendees an overview on foreign investment rules in Vietnam, opportunities for investment and some challenges which in-house counsel may face when doing business in Vietnam.
