From the 1 September 2017,  HKCCA members will become members of newly branded ACC Hong Kong. ‘Under this alliance our members will benefit from the strongest global network for in-house counsel,’ said Lin Shi, HKCCA President. ‘Our alliance will yield more connections, resources, and professional development opportunities for in-house lawyers in Hong Kong.’

'Enhanced value'

The alliance will deliver enhanced value to ACC Hong Kong members through access to the extensive ACC resource library containing regional and global-focused content developed specifically for in-house lawyers. Members will also have the ability to participate in live virtual programming and have access to ACC education programmes across the globe, including the ACC Australia National Conference and ACC annual meeting.

Important perspective on doing business in Hong Kong

‘The Hong Kong based in-house counsel joining the ACC network will enrich our association and provide an important perspective on doing business in Hong Kong and the broader Asia Pacific region,’ said Veta T Richardson, ACC President and CEO. ‘The alliance strengthens ACC’s ability to enhance our member engagement in Hong Kong, one of the world’s most important business hubs.’
