The 13th annual Middle East In-House Congress Dubai had a record attendance from across the region, with delegates attending from Oman, Cairo and Saudi Arabia. The event got off to a resounding start with a busy and engaging plenary session as Hadef Al Dhaheri, former federal Minister of Justice for the
UAE, introduced the themes of technology and talent management, which were further elaborated on by Sydney-based former general counsel Peter Connor, who emphasised the importance of personal transformation. Sadiq Jafar of Hadef & Partners moderated both panels. The technology panel explored how automation can be both an enabler and a disruptor. The second panel discussed the challenges of mentoring and being mentored in a multi-cultural setting, as well as the continuing challenges relating to work-life balance and careers, especially for women lawyers. The day continued with varied topics from doing business in Africa to the impact of GDPR and ended with an announcement of the firms
competing for the In-House teams and law firms of the year awards.
With thanks to the generous support of Al Suwaidi & Company, BonelliErede with TLA, BSA, Gibson Dunn, Hadef & Partners, Maples Group, Navex Global, Pacific Strategies & Assessments, Reed Smith and Taylor Root.
