Amid the chaos of COVID-19, the Singapore Corporate Counsel Association (SCCA) has found its footing with the office adjusting to working from home.
Mel Nirmala, executive director of SCCA said: “Getting your head around the global pandemic, while trying to live a normal life, has become almost impossible for anyone. Businesses have been focusing on post-COVID conversations while trying to re-strategize functions in departments and staff.
“In-house lawyers and compliance officers have been impacted significantly greater than others, having had their heads metaphorically twisted, pulled then re-attached. The disruption has been very real at all companies, whether they are small or big. It was the same at the SCCA.
“Thankfully, we were agile enough to bring our strengths together quite seamlessly. We took this opportunity to enable in-house lawyers from around the world to engage in various ways with their peers by bringing like-minded conversations to a virtual stage, where they listened, conversed, debated and understood each other’s challenges.”
