Event Report

The general sentiment of the GCs filled the room with gratefulness and pride. Stephanie Dávila Ballón, Legal manager at Fabrica Peruana Eternit, was thrilled to be included in the Peruvian GC Powerlist by the Legal 500 as ‘one of the best in-house counsel in Peru’. This is a recognition not only towards her work, but also towards her company that gives her the ‘trust and professional as well as personal growth day by day’. Reiterating Stephanie’s words, Jorge Arias Valencia, Head of Legal and corporate affairs at Terpel thanked his company for ‘giving him and his family the opportunity to continue growing and be considered once again by The Legal 500 GC Powerlist Peru’. Discussions touched upon several topics. Mainly two stand out: how new technological tools are shaping the legal departments and what are the new skills currently required for GCs post-pandemic.
