COVER STORY: IN-HOUSE SURVEY


What are some of the priorities of in-house counsel in the upcoming year, and how is their relationship with external law firms continuing to evolve? The ALB 2018 In-house Survey answers these questions and more. In-house counsel are welcome to provide their thoughts at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/IHSurvey18  


FEATURE: CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY


CSR has become an important priority of law firms across Asia, be it pro bono work, support of charities, or other initiatives. We speak to firms in the region about the kind of CSR work they are doing.


REPORT: INDIA


With the dust from India’s demonetization drive and GST launch finally settling, dealmaking in India is on the up, particularly as the Modi government continues to remove regulatory hurdles and simplify laws to further attract FDI. We speak to lawyers about the trends they are seeing.


FEATURE: DISPUTES


In 2017, Singapore saw three international third-party funders open an office: First there was IMF Bentham, and it was later followed by Burford Capital and Woodsford Litigation Funding. We speak to lawyers on the ground on how TPF is impacting the disputes scene in Singapore, as well as to funders about the kind of cases they are looking to fund.


FEATURE: TMT


Recent research by Google and Temasek Holdings predicts that e-commerce sales in Southeast Asia will grow from $5.5 billion in 2015 to $88 billion in 2025. These provides massive opportunities for established giants, startups as well as savvy law firms that are expanding their TMT practices.


REPORT: MYANMAR


The new Myanmar Companies Law 2017 is expected to be approved by the Burmese parliament by the end of 2017, and is set to drastically reform the country’s investment landscape. We assess how this law is different from previous ones, and the benefits for investors.


FEATURE: LEGAL TECH


In-house counsel in organizations both large and small have an array of legal tech at their fingertips, but limited budgets mean they need to be careful about what they choose. We speak to both in-house lawyers and solution providers on how they can find the right practice management software.


COVERAGE: KOREA LAW AWARDS


We have full coverage of ALB Korea Law Awards 2017, including the list of winners, and photos from this event.
