The China and Hong Kong GC Powerlist launch event was held at the China Summit Wing in Beijing on 2 March, with a cocktail reception, where lawyers from various cities travelled to celebrate the very best from Greater China's in-house market.

The GC Powerlist is a publication designed to highlight the most influential and innovative corporate counsel in a market. After going through a rigorous process of nominations, background research and interviews, we are pleased to be highlighting the great work that in-house lawyers do, and happy to give the 100 selected individuals global coverage as they join the other elite in-house lawyers the GC Powerlist series has already recognised around the world.

Included on the list are the key in-house lawyers from companies such as Abbott Laboratories, Alibaba, Total China, China Telecom, Huawei, DSM China, Ping An Insurance, Schneider Electric, Sinochem, Tiens Group and 3M. The full list can be found here.

The guests were welcomed by The Legal 500 China Editor Bei Zhao followed by our keynote speakers, Mr Kejun Guo, senior partner at Zhong Lun Law Firm, and Victor Shen, Chief Legal Officer at the Henkel Greater China and Korea. Both speakers discussed key developments in the Chinese legal market, the importance placed on the legal sector to protect and maximise its economic and commercial potential, and the increasingly important role in-house legal teams play within their companies.

Guests at the event welcomed the opportunity to socialise and celebrate with their peers. A number of GCs commended the event for bringing together corporate counsel from across the region and industry sectors. One of the GC told us on the night: "We are very happy that our work has been recognised by The Legal 500".

The China and Hong Kong GC Powerlist was sponsored by Zhong Lun Law Firm.
