World’s largest in-house counsel network adds HK chapter

by |
The world’s largest organization of in-house counsel has grown even bigger after the recent addition of some 800 members to its global network.

The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) welcomed last week ACC Hong Kong as its newest chapter, following the alliance ACC and the Hong Kong Corporate Counsel Association (HKCCA).

“The vast majority of in-house lawyers in Hong Kong work across borders, and as ACC Hong Kong members, they will benefit from new global connections, cross-border professional development opportunities, and resources focused on law and business in multiple jurisdictions,” said Lin Shi, ACC Hong Kong president and the former president of HKCCA.

Among other things, ACC Hong Kong members gain access to the global network’s resource library, including regional and global-focused content developed specifically for in-house lawyers.

ACC has more than 42,000 members – employed by more than 10,000 organizations – in 85 countries, according to its latest figures.

“ACC members have identified Hong Kong as one of the locations where they seek increased peer connections,” said Tanya Khan, ACC vice president and managing director, Australia and Asia Pacific. “By launching ACC Hong Kong, we have the opportunity to create new inroads and networks for our membership base.”
