Singapore – Young counsel head to Red Tail



Following the appointment of Renita Sophia Crasta and Daniel Choo as co-chairs for the Young Lawyers Chapter (Peers) of the Singapore Corporate Counsel Association (SCCA), Peers held its latest event for young in-house counsel at Red Tail, Zouk on 26 September. The event was sponsored by Allen & Gledhill and attended by more than 60 in-house counsel, who during the evening got to know more about SCCA.

Florence Tan, an attendee at the Peers event and in-house counsel at Illumina, a DNA sequencing company, said the event activities helped “to connect like-minded legal peers to develop ourselves further, and better carry out our roles in the various capacities that we take up in an in-house environment, which often extends far-beyond just the law.”

In addition to such networking events that are regularly hosted by Peers, and courses organized by SCCA, the chapter also has upcoming initiatives from its quarterly Peers night, featuring inspirational talks on life in and beyond the law, a one-day conference in early 2019 for lawyers new to in-house practice, not to mention frequent tie-ups with the Singapore Academy of Law and Law Society.
