Building on the success of our past three annuals, The Ideas Exchange proudly presents the 4th edition of India’s premiere peer-to-peer knowledge and networking exchange for the in-house legal community, the Legal Counsel Congress & Awards on 18th January 2013 at Trident BKC Mumbai.

Come and experience the enriching difference as did many industry leaders who chose to partner with the Legal Counsel congress:

  • “It was indeed a successful conference. The participant number was just right so that close interaction was possible.  The second day extensively covered two important laws. The material for discussion was exhaustive and the forum was well balanced and the programme was superb.”

Arvind Sonawane, Director - Corporate Counsel, Thermo Fisher Scientific India Pvt. Ltd

  • “I think it is great to finally have this kind of a forum for the in-house legal community. The caliber of speakers and the sessions was very high. Good job all around.”

  • “The Ideas Exchange team did a tremendous job in carefully structuring the content and presentation which made the Congress different from other such events”
