The role of general counsel and senior in-house legal advisors is constantly evolving to meet the rapidly changing demands of organisations in today’s business world. In addition to overseeing the day-to-day legal challenges affecting the business and managing legal staff, counsel are expected to diversify their service offering in order to overcome a growing list of commercial challenges. Whether it is complying with the latest data protection regulations, defending their company against cyber threats, restructuring debts or adapting to the shifting trends in M&A, the required skillset of the profession is developing at an exponential rate.

GC Summit Indonesia invites the most esteemed in-house counsel from the country’s most prolific companies to discuss their changing roles as in-house leaders and the challenges, issues and opportunities they are facing in 2019 and beyond. Between comprehensive panel discussions and the opportunity to meet and engage with fellow in-house counsel, GC Summit Indonesia promises to be a practical, forward-looking event bringing together the region’s top legal minds.
