Logo_In-House Community Counsels of the year Awards 2020


The In-House Community Counsels of the Year Awards is an important event in the In-House Community calendar. It provides an opportunity to both benchmark and celebrate innovation and excellence across a range of areas in both in-house and external legal services.

At a time when it is clearly not possible to physically bring together in one room the leading legal counsel from across the New Silk Road, we’re excited to host our first ever:

In-House Community Counsels of the Year e-Ceremony

LIVE online!


Date: 28 May 2020 (Thursday)
Time: 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM Hong Kong, China Time

Award contenders and their supporters will be able to login and join us from the comfort of their desks, at home, in the office or wherever they are, to hear the winners announced and raise a glass in their honour.

As well as providing an opportunity to recognise our winning legal teams, the e-Celebration will help raise money for our worthy chosen charity, CC-TDI (Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute)*, which we are supporting for the second year running.
