Corporate Counsel Forum Middle East

The Corporate Counsel Forum Middle East 2014 took place on Wednesday 14th May, in the beautiful surroundings of the Mina A'Salam, Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, and was a sell out event with over 220 delegates.

This year we welcomed Anneliese Reinhold as chairperson. Voted Middle East In-House Lawyer of the Year and Most Influential Female Lawyer of the Year in the recent Brief Magazine Middle East Law Awards (2012), Anneliese is the general counsel & senior vice-president - legal & regulatory affairs for du, the second telecoms operator in the UAE, a position she has held since 2005.

One of the highlights of the day was surely the opening keynote speaker, His Highness Sheikh Maktoum Hasher Al Maktoum, Executive Chairman of SHUAA Capital and the Chairman of Dubai International Holding Company who spoke about his thoughts on the role of the General Counsel.

This year's programme held more choice than ever before for delegates, with a choice of four sessions per break-out stream.  There was also a range of panel sessions on topics ranging from Compliance to Woman, Power and Corporate Diversity, a great plenary presentation on M&A in the Gulf, and a CEO Perpective interview with Francois De Montaudouin.


This year's Corporate Counsel Forum Middle East was the biggest yet, and on behalf of Legal Week I would like to thank all our speakers, sponsors and delegates for their support.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Legal Week Corporate Counsel Forum Middle East 2015 next May, if you have any feedback on this year's forum, or have any suggestions, or are interested in speaking at next year's forum, please do not hesitate to contact me at
