Board of directors' welcome message
Thank you for visiting the ACC Middle East website. We hope that this site will grow to be a valuable portal for in-house counsel in the region and serve as an effective introduction to our group, our upcoming activities and useful resources.
ACC Middle East, established in May 2014 and formed out of its predecessor, Corporate Counsel Middle East, brings together corporate counsel from 15 countries for education and collaboration opportunities, networking events and advocacy initiatives.
The ACC Middle East Board of Directors has developed membership benefits on both a global and local level. ACC Middle East members have access to international resources and a worldwide network of more than 42,000 ACC in-house counsel peers. Additionally, we are planning local programs of interest on topics such as compliance and ethics, litigation and business practices in the region. You will find details about these programs on our website, together with pictures from some of our past events.
We aspire to be an effective resource and link for in-house counsel, with each other, with our global counterparts and with the broader Middle East legal, business and government communities. In recent years, legal practice in the Middle East has become increasingly sophisticated, complex, fast-paced and dynamic. Our in-depth resources directly address the many challenges you face as corporate lawyers practicing in the region.
Although our group is global in scope, we are also a tight-knit community within the region. We are always looking for ways to better serve corporate counsel in the Middle East and welcome any ideas and suggestions you may have to enhance our programming.
