Welcome to edition number 9 of Empower for the year 2022!
This time, we have something specially curated for all of you.
Instead of the usual legal updates and legal articles, edition number 9 is a special edition in conjunction with an inaugural joint conference that HHQ and HLP just held on 29th of September 2022 at the Asian International Arbitration Centre.
The joint conference was attended by clients from both firms and it consisted of a very diverse crowd. In total, we had 120 participants attending the conference in person and 67 participants attending the conference remotely.
Considering that this was the first of any such event jointly held by HHQ and HLP, the turnout was indeed very encouraging! We were humbled by the presence of many of our established and long-serving clients as well as new clients whom we have only recently started forging relationships with.
The conference was indeed a successful event per the feedback we have received thus far. Participants remained enthusiastic throughout all sessions and were very engaging as well. We promise you that this would be the first of many more conferences to come! We’ve seen your response, and we are eager to give you more!
This newsletter has thus been specially created for those of you who may not have been able to attend the conference. We know that some of you with intentions to attend were simply not able to do so due to other commitments. Hence, do check out this edition to see what you missed on! We have prepared a concise write-up of the entire event covering all speeches and sharing sessions held.
In other news, HHQ turns 22 on 1st October 2022! This edition also includes an exclusive interview with Dato’ Quek Ngee Meng, Managing Partner of HHQ on the firm’s journey thus far. Do read this article if you are interested to understand about HHQ’s history, culture and future plans!
Thank you and we hope you enjoy this edition!
