Value proposition for the multinational corporate legal department in South East Asia
Globally and especially in Asia there is tremendous growth in multinational corporate. Some of these corporate have a revenue generating model in Asia and others have a back office presence to reduce the cost of their US, UK and global operations. The legal departments of these corporations are serving the requests and the needs of their global legal operations, apart from running local legal operations. Almost all the multinational legal departments that we surveyed face a shortage of legal talent.To serve the needs of their foreign counterparts, they need additional skills that are outlined in our training program. Lawwave has aligned itself to serve the interest of the corporate legal departments in Asia by bridging this skill and knowledge gap. This is our commitment and part of our vision.
Our training program is designed to address this challenge. We started this training program three years back when Lawwave was launched. It was however only offered to Lawwave lawyers till now. The goal of our training program is to bring the best legal practices, tools and training to enable the corporate legal department to compete with their international legal departments in the quest for talent. We have conducted initial surveys with several legal counsels in Asia and the structure of this program is dictated by those surveys. We offer the trainees for hiring purposes to those corporates who support this initiative.
