Date: August 22, 2012
Venue: Supreme Court Building
Organiser: Singapore Academy of Law

Program

Description:

What mode of dispute resolution should I choose? What law should I choose to govern this contract? How do I draft arbitration clauses that are fair to all parties and safeguard my organisation’s interests? These are some of the frequent questions an in-house counsel faces at work. As in-house counsel often negotiate deals with parties from different jurisdictions, it is important to understand the legal culture and characteristics of the respective jurisdictions.
In-house counsel can expect increasingly more deals involving parties from China, India and ASEAN. The Singapore Academy of Law is pleased to put together a special session for in-house counsel, where leading lawyers will share their knowledge and experience in litigation, arbitration and enforcement of arbitral awards in China, India and ASEAN (focusing on Indonesia). This seminar will put together concise and relevant information about the legal characteristics of these jurisdictions that every in-house counsel would benefit from knowing.
