Global Counsel Congress


Focusing on the specific legal challenges of the increasingly complex international regulatory landscape, the fourth annual ILO Global Counsel Congress will once again bring together senior in-house counsel delegates and high-profile speakers from across the globe, encouraging the sharing of expertise and experience across borders.


The 2014 programme will address the most pressing regulatory issues facing corporate counsel today, giving attendees the opportunity to exchange insight and opinion with regulators and  general counsel from some of the world’s largest companies. Topics will include:

  • Running an internal investigation
  • Reputation management
  • Managing risk in new markets
  • Anti-bribery and corruption
  • Data protection and privacy
  • Work area roundtables: cross-border concerns in M&A, intellectual property and employment


“Thank you for arranging such a fabulous Global Congress and Awards Dinner. Both events were spectacular and quite memorable.”

“I really liked the panel format. It kept things interesting and gave a nicely diverse perspective. I found more than one key point that I took away from each panel. Excellent topics and excellent speakers who had a lot of real world experience. I especially appreciated the perspectives of the in-house counsel.”
Martha L Rees
Vice President and Assistant General Counsel
