On Tuesday June 21, 2016, we brought together over 100 of our members in Thailand at the fourteenth annual In-House Congress Bangkok, co-hosted by Chandler & Thong-ek, Kroll, Rajah & Tann, Stephensen Harwood and ZICOlaw.

Welcome remarks from In-House Community Managing Director Tim Gilkison were followed by the panel discussion ‘In-House Lawyering: Uncovering the relationship between Quality, Cost & Value and the ever changing relationship with external counsel’. The debate was led by Evangelos Apostolou, Principal, DA Partners (a law practice member firm of the EY global network) and featured thoughts from Jackson Pek, Vice President and General Counsel, Asia Pacific, Amadeus IT Group, S.A.;
Punnapat Luengthartthong, Head of Legal & Compliance – Thailand, BASF Group in Thailand; Suthirugs Berry, Director, Group Legal Counsel, Thoresen Group; Niwes Phancharoenworakul, Managing Partner, Chandler & Thong-ek Law Offices Limited; and Sui Lin Teoh, Partner, Rajah & Tann (Thailand) Limited.

Subsequent sessions covered renewable energy projects, nonstandard research in support of asset tracing, cross-border M&As, IP and JV protection and compliance and litigation considerations to take onboard when interacting with government agencies.

We at the In-House Community would like to thank co-hosts and attendees for their support and hope to see all who were involved at next year’s event.
