Round-table: The impact of remote working for in-house lawyers (Webinar)

5 May 2021
WIN Webinar

We would like to invite you to register for our first 2021 WIN webinar in Mozambique, in which we will discuss the effects of remote working for in-house lawyers, since it was introduced as an additional measure towards the prevention of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are pleased to confirm we will be joined by a panel of renowned lawyers:

  • Hernane Estanque – Head of Legal - ABSA Bank Moçambique, S.A.
  • Mahomed Jussub – Head of Legal - VALE Moçambique, S.A.
  • Benjamim Mendes – Partner - DLA Piper (Portugal)
  • José Manuel Caldeira – Founding Partner of SAL & Caldeira Advogados, Lda (Moderator)

During this webinar, our panelists will present their opinions first hand on the positive and negative impacts of remote working (continued or rotational) for their teams and will also cover the current situation as well as future projections.

Even though remote working has had legal protection through various legal instruments since last year,  it remains an important discussion considering the reform of Labor Law in our country for the benefit, not only of in-house lawyers but  also many other occupations.

During this exclusive webinar, we will also have the opportunity to openly discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the relationship between in-house legal teams and law firms, taking into account the economic downturn against an increased need for legal services.

This webinar is part of our 2021 global WIN webinar programme which has been created around the feedback from a survey of our global community of in-house lawyers in 2020. The survey aimed to better understand your considerations, challenges and perceived opportunities over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. You can read more about the survey’s findings in the WIN Insights Report.

To access more resources for in-house lawyers, please register to WIN.

For more information or to register for this event, please email Diana Ramalho or Elsa Sambo no later than 3 May 2021.
