Lotte Legend Hotel Saigon


On April 20th, the Lotte Legend Hotel Saigon played host to the 4th annual HCMC In-House Community Congress. In what is a growing, and rapidly maturing, in-house community, delegate questions and discussions made for a lively and interactive forum.

The opening plenary session addressed: “The Path to Excellence – How to benchmark the In-House Team’s evolution and What is the role of External Providers to assist the In-House Team along this path?” Informed by the data provided by our In-House Community pre-event survey, our excellent plenary panel comprising Nang Nguyen, head of legal, ANZ Bank (Vietnam); Thuy-Minh Lai, chief admin officer, Country Legal Counsel, Citibank, N.A. (Vietnam); Tom Vaizey, senior legal counsel, Dragon Capital Group; Maurice Burke, partner, Hogan Lovells; Nguyen Anh Tuan, partner, LNT & Partners; Zunu (Joon-Woo) Lee, partner, Yoon & Yang; and moderated by Patrick Dransfield, publishing director, In-House Community elucidated on the subject and raised thoughts of how best to utilise the resources available to in-house teams.

The sessions that followed provided a breadth of topics for delegates to choose from, including: Risk Management for In-House Counsel Handling Cross-Border Contracts, presented by Duane Morris Vietnam; How to Utilise International Trade Agreements, courtesy of Yoon & Yang; Tone from the Top: Why Ignoring the FCPA and Other International ABC Laws is NOT an Option, hosted by Hogan Lovells; and Management Beware: The Hostile Takeover is Coming to Vietnam. How to Protect Yourself, followed by What an Employer Needs to Know about an Employee’s Right to Privacy, both presented by Russin & Vecchi.
