Around 200 guests attended the Korean In-house Counsel Association’s (KICA) 2023 general meeting and new year’s party at the Lotte Hotel in Seoul on 10 January.
“This year, the rapid changes in the world and the covid-19 situation continue to be a very difficult time for companies,” said Kim Sunghan, the KICA’s chairman in his opening speech.
“At the centre of these changes, in-house lawyers have gone beyond the bridging role between corporate management and legal affairs and played a key role in enhancing corporate competitiveness.”
Kim hoped that the networking event could be useful for sharing knowledge and vision, and in-house lawyers can continue to support the association, which currently has more than 2,500 members.
After the general meeting, foreign guests and candidates were presented for the election of the heads of the Korean Bar Association, the KICA’s operational progress and audit report for 2022 was given and followed by the award ceremony for outstanding members and divisions.
