INBA General Counsel Summit 2018

July 19, 2018, Taj Lands End, Bandra, Mumbai
Tackling The Future... Today


In a modern, digitally driven economy, businesses are run globally at breakneck speed. Millions of systems are incessantly talking to each other and trillions of bytes of data keep getting generated, day on day – 24X7X365. The Internet has transcended all geographical barriers and the lives we lead today are both - challenging and complex.

This disruptive world offers an overdose of business information and critical statistics. Tremendous financial, business and legal ramifications such as ownership of business information, civil and criminal liabilities, data protection, privacy, cyber-crimes etc. are the order of the day. In the light of such global practices, the mission critical roles of a General Counsel have shot up exponentially and the roles have undergone a major metamorphosis. The legal services marketplace has become more evolved and demanding and is virtually re-shaping itself with every passing year.

Globalization has brought along a bag full of regulatory and compliance dimensions. A general counsel is not merely a part of the management core team but plays a crucial role in adherence to tax laws, compliance, and regulations. A general counsel is also the vital link between the company and the executive board and hence his/her accountability goes up multi-fold.


The inaugural edition of INBA General Counsel Summit 2018 will strive to seek answers to the most pertinent challenges faced by Indian General Counsel communities today.

The theme of this year's conference is "Tackling The Future...Today"

This forum will provide a meeting place for related domain professionals (from Manufacturing, BFSI, IT, Law, Pharma, Telecom, Government and other major verticals) to gather under one roof for in-depth deliberations on a variety of topics as also provide perfect avenues for networking and business matching amongst industry peers and colleagues.
