FROM PRIVATE PRACTICE TO IN-HOUSE - BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS in person

Hong Kong Corporate Counsel Association

When

25 May 2017

12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Location

Herbert Smith Freehills, 23/F Gloucester Tower, 15 Queen's Road Central, Central, Hong Kong

Registration

HKCCA Members only

The HKCCA’s Executive Committee invites you to the following presentation by Artemis Gray, kindly hosted by Herbert Smith Freehills.

 

Food and drinks will be provided. Law Society of Hong Kong CPD accreditation will be applied for. New York and California Approved Jurisdiction policy may apply.

TOPIC:  From Private Practice to In-House - Building Relationships

Relationship building is an essential skill for all in house lawyers.  Those who have recently made the move from private practice may find that winning over some of their new internal clients can be more difficult than expected.  Familiar with building client relationships in their private practice firm, they will now be faced with new challenges.  How do you approach showing your internal clients what you do, how the legal team operates and how to help each other?  How do you gain ground with colleagues who have little knowledge (or interest) in legal issues?  And how do you build relationships in an environment where nobody has the time?

In this 60 minute workshop, we will look at how to overcome these obstacles and adapt private practice marketing approaches and understanding to suit the demands on an in-house lawyer.  The session will finish with practical suggestions for attendees to put any lessons learned into practice when they return to work.

SPEAKERS: Joanne Gray, Founder and Director, Artemis Gray

Joanne began her career in a business development role at Allen & Overy, which led to a career in international business development for law firms in Europe, the US and Asia. Most recently, she has been Asia Head of Business Development for both Freshfields and Linklaters. Joanne has worked with lawyers of all levels on business development and client relationship management. She set up Artemis Gray in 2014 to focus on those aspects of her in-house roles she enjoyed the most: coaching, training and consulting. She did her coach training with the NeuroLeadership Group and is a member of the International Coach Federation.

THE UBERISATION OF SOCIETY – ITS ECONOMIC AND LEGAL ISSUES in person

De Berti Jacchia Franchini Forlani Studio Legale

 

 

 

Uberisation is a media and multiform phenomenon, characterised by being put in direct contact via digital platforms with private individuals who offer and consume services. It is a horizontal economic model of the “peer to peer” variety which achieves savings versus the classical entrepreneurial organisation with its salaried employees.

This phenomenon presents companies with new questions that they cannot ignore, because the phenomenon has long moved beyond the single domain of transport (Uber, Blablacar, Deliveroo…) or hotel services (AirBnB, Homelidays….). It extends today to the financial sector (peer to peer lending) and is developing in the domain of services (emergency services and home repairs, legal aid services…). Sectors which are safe from “uberisation” are rare. It is therefore indispensable that we understand the phenomenon and its main economic and legal issues.

From 9.30 to 14.00
