In May 2021, the Singapore Corporate Counsel Association hosted a virtual cross-border roundtable sponsored by Meritas. The event was a strategic collaboration between the two organizations. It focused on the challenges faced by in-house lawyers today and how in-house lawyers' expectations of external lawyers are changing as a result. The panel of external counsel was moderated by Joyce Tan of Joyce A. Tan & Partners LLC, with her Meritas colleagues serving as panelists. They included Philip Wong of Gallant (Hong Kong), Yao Rao of HHP Attorneys-at-law (Shanghai, China), Ajay Bhargava of Khaitan & Co (India), and Emerico De Guzman of ACCRALAW (Philippines). They were joined at the roundtable by 16 in-house counsel from six jurisdictions across Asia for a lively and frank conversation. “Cross-Border Conversation: The Challenges Faced by In-House and External Counsel Today” summarizes the key takeaways from the session.
