On Tuesday the 12th of September 2017, OLN sponsored the ALB In-House Counsel Summit held at the Conrad Hotel. Big thank you to our Partners Richard Healy, Chris Hooley and Anna Chan; as well as Senior Associate Carmen Tang, Associate Jonathan Lam and Consultants Adelina Wong and Gary Wong for volunteering and representing OLN.
This was a great opportunity for OLN to increase our brand presence among in-house counsels and other legal practitioners — as well giving our members the chance to network and be a part of the various workshops.
There were approximately 500 attendees that registered for the different workshops throughout the day; with heavy foot traffic passing our booth situated outside the Grand Ballroom. We were in contact with a variety of guests; many of which were interested in our practice areas and particularly our mints and golf tees!
We hope to build on the success of this event for the upcoming 2017 In-House Congress Hong Kong on the 10th of October 2017 at the Marriott Hotel where Partner, Anna Chan will be delivering a presentation on “Cybersecurity and Data Privacy”. More details to follow.

OLN staff supported the Child Welfare Scheme’s ‘Shake & Bake’ fundraising event on June 1st.
Several members of staff baked a variety of delicious sweet and savoury treats for the charity lunch held at our offices. Everyone paid HK$100 donation for the buffet and all monies raised will support children in Nepal to receive a safe and effective education; thereby remaining in school longer, protected longer and with improved prospects of future employment.
