On June 2, 2016, DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur was the venue for our fifteenth annual In-House Congress Kuala Lumpur, attended by a record breaking 233 members from the jurisdiction’s In-House Community.

Subsequent to welcome remarks from Patrick Dransfield, Publishing Director, Asian-mena Counsel and Co-Director, In-House Community, delegates received insight during our panel discussion entitled ‘In-House Lawyering: uncovering the relationship between Quality, Cost and Value, and their continuingly changing relationship with External Counsel’. This was led by Evangelos Apostolou, Principal, DA Partners (a law practice member firm of EY global network and a former regional General Counsel of many years standing, and involved thoughts from Lee Chin Tok, Group General Counsel, CIMB Group; Hema Latha Sinnakaudan, General Counsel, Legal, Compliance & Company Secretarial, Sun Life Malaysia Assurance Berhad; Adrian Chair, Managing Partner, Putri Norlisa Chair; Janice Anne Leo, Partner, Shook Lin & Bok; and Gilbert Gan Boon Seah, Partner, Zaid Ibrahim & Co (member of ZICO Law).

Workshops then ensued, providing guests with the opportunity to hear about the New Companies Act; Investigations; the Personal Data Protection Act 2010; Challenges and Pitfalls in an M&A Transaction Cycle; and Cross-Border M&As. These sessions were led by representatives of co-hosts Shook Lin & Bok; Zaid Ibrahim & Co; Christopher & Lee Ong; Kadir Andri & Partners; and Trowers & Hamlins. As always, we at the In-House Community are grateful to both those who came to share their expertise and our members for their continued support, as well as sponsors Hughes-Castell.

“Congrats on another successful In-House Congress!”
