2019 Annual Conference of In-House Lawyers
Having both extensive in-house and private practice experience, our Partner, Charles To, was invited by the Law Society of Hong Kong to moderate the session “Working Across Countries, Languages and Cultures” at the 2019 Annual Conference of In-House Lawyers on 12 June 2019. The panel also comprised of Mr. Francis Chang, Executive Vice President & General Counsel, Business & Legal Affairs, FOX Networks Group Asia, Mr. Paul Li, General Counsel, OAX Foundation and Mr. Alan Tsang, Senior Legal Counsel, Ant Financial.
The session turned out to be highly inspiring and enlightening. The experienced panelists generously shared their experience as in-house legal lawyers working across the countries and highlighted the importance and advantage of in-house lawyers being able to understand and manage differences in culture, legislations relating to race discrimination in employment, and the ways to overcome cross-cultural diversity in the practice of law across jurisdictions, as well as language and cultural barriers at work.
