More than 200 delegates attended our 17th annual In-House Congress Beijing on March 28 and the plenary session provided much food for thought.
The positive data relating to women in the GC role in China (59% of all GCs, according to our own research) was contrasted with the real-life experience as our moderator, Doreen Jaeger of Hughes-Castell, deftly coached out of the panel contrasting views as to whether women experienced a glass ceiling when it came to promotions to the C-suite in China. It was agreed by all, however, that women have more impediments to men when it comes to business alignment with other stakeholders in the corporate environment as men have traditionally bonded through after-work activities, shared interest in sport and the like — and that mentoring programmes for women lawyers generally and women in in-house specifically are definitely of benefit.
The event also benefited from a spirited introduction to investment in India from Luthra & Luthra’s Mohit Saraf.
Workshops included discussion of the judicial environment for litigation and arbitration
in China with FenXun Partners, handling misconduct in the workplace with Clyde & Co, US sanctions developments with Davis Polk, global anti-corruption enforcement with Debevoise & Plimpton, offshore structures in private equity and IPOs with Conyers Dill & Pearman, China data protection issues with Latham & Watkins, Hong Kong listing options with Reed Smith, implementing solutions for senior in-house counsel with Eversheds Sutherland and antitrust litigations in China with Zhong Lun Law Firm.
