Due to increasing demand on legal function to actively support global business growth and the number of new regulation on a global as well as local level, many general counsels are faced with a challenge of how to effectively run their legal department in mitigating legal risks worldwide.
In light of this, Marcus Evans has announced that the much anticipated Corporate Legal Risk Management conference will be held in Kuala Lumpur from 5 to 6 September 2012. This conference aims at leveraging organisations’ mitigation processes and response strategies in minimising business exposure to today’s legal risks.
Martin Ekundayo, Region Legal & Compliance Director of Baker Hughes Asia Pacific who is one of the speakers for the conference stated that legal compliance should be embraced as a means to achieve sustainable long-term growth and profitability, rather than as a barrier to business.
Participant of this conference will gain industry insights on topics such accelerating the process of embedding compliance in place for businesses; Online and electronic social media platforms and its connection to legal risks; Aligning business culture and operations with regulatory requirements; Legal protection, support and structure during crisis management; Optimising approach to cross border litigation and managing the costs involved efficiently; Assessing the likely outcomes of disputes and the most suitable dispute resolution process; as well as discussing the impact of new acts in the Asian business environment.
According to Anneliese Reinhold, Board Member at Corporate Counsel Middle East and General Counsel and SVP Legal and Regulatory Affairs of du, an award winner for ‘Best In-House Counsel Telecoms/Media/IT Sector’ 2008 Dubai Corporate Counsel Group Awards, legal risk management is an extremely broad topic, but one which is of key relevance to businesses of all shapes and sizes in today’s post Global Financial Crisis operating environment.
Key presenters from the Corporate Legal Risk Management conference include Kuna Muno, Ethics and Compliance Chief APJ from Hewlett-Packard; David Blackmon, VP and Associate General Counsel – Upstream International Asia of Shell Eastern Petroleum; Martin Ekundayo, Region Legal & Compliance Director of Baker Hughes Asia Pacific; David Flavell, SVP and General Counsel AMEA of PepsiCo, Inc. and Anneliese Reinhold, Board Member at Corporate Counsel Middle East and General Counsel and SVP Legal and Regulatory Affairs of du.
