On 7 July, over 20 members comprising in-house lawyers and private practitioners joined a company visit to the headquarters of Midea Group (“Midea”) in Shunde.
Midea is a manufacturer of household electrical appliances. Owning a number of public companies and operating offices in approximately 200 countries, it is the largest white goods production and export base in China. The tour started with a visit to the showroom of Midea, where different products of the company were displayed, followed by a brief stop at the history gallery introducing the development of Midea from its establishment around half a century ago. After a lunch gathering with their legal team, representatives of Midea shared their experiences and challenges working as in-house lawyers in the mainland. Legal practitioners from both jurisdictions then exchanged ideas and views on their daily legal practices. The event was concluded by a visit to Midea’s Innovation Exhibition Hall where the latest technology and innovative products were showcased.
The 2017 Annual Conference of In-House Lawyers will be held on Friday, 29 September. Prominent speakers will share their experience on different topics. We look forward to seeing you there soon!
