Undoubtedly, Peru experiences one of its best business moments in the continent and the demand for in-house legal departments proliferates in those companies that seek to extend their internal legal capacity to respond quickly to the business opportunities offered by many industries in the country.
Topics such as, the exchange of pre-M&A sensitive information, the adoption of new INDECOPI procedures and their impact on the corporate scenario, the integration of new effective anti-corruption models, productive decentralisation among others will be addressed by legal experts in four panels of discussion. These panels are specifically designed to give the audience the right knowledge to handle the challenges and opportunities presented by the corporate legal sector with the best legal strategies designed by experts of the most successful companies in the country.
The Legal 500’s GC Summit Peru invites the best in-house counsel and the GC’s from Peru’s most prominent companies to discuss their changing roles as in-house leaders and the challenges and opportunities they are facing in 2020 and beyond. Between comprehensive panel discussions and the opportunity to meet and engage with fellow in-house counsel, GC Summit Peru promises to be a practical and forward-looking event, bringing together the country’s top legal minds.
