THE LEGAL 500 > EVENTS > GC POWERLIST: AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND
SYDNEY: 27 OCTOBER 2016
The first GC Powerlist: Australia and New Zealand was launched at an event in Sydney on Thursday 27th October 2016, with a panel discussion and champagne reception hosted at the brand new International Towers office complex in Sydney’s vibrant Barangaroo district. We welcomed a broad range of Australia and New Zealand’s finest in-house counsel to celebrate the very best of Australia and New Zealand’s in-house legal talent.
The GC Powerlist is a publication designed to highlight the most influential and innovative general counsel in a market. A three month process of nominations, background research and interviews concluded in the selection of 100 in-house lawyers across Australia and New Zealand.
Included on the list are the key in-house lawyers for household names such as BHP Billiton, McDonald’s Australia, Coca-Cola Amatil, Deloitte, BT, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Fonterra, Apple, Vodafone Australia, Woolworths, Fairfax Media, Fortescue Metals Group, GrainCorp, GDF SUEZ Australian Energy, Caltex, Shell, and eBay.

One of the GCs told us that 'this event was perfect – just the right combination of networking, panel discussion and Q&A session.'
Another one noted that 'this evening presented a great opportunity to network with GCs from other industries. I only knew a handful of those attending here tonight and I’ve made a number of new connections.'
Thank you to KPMG Australia who sponsored the GC Powerlist: Australia and New Zealand.
