Entrepreneurship and innovation are key pillars to the educational programs of IE University, as it prepares exceptional candidates to become international business leaders. This is why the IE Lebanon Club paid special interest to host a seminar on Intellectual Property, a topic that is of special importance to those thriving to start their companies and dive into the world of venture capital and business partnerships.
Each year, new legislations, challenges, and client preferences dictate the changes that have to be adopted by modern-day companies, else, they’re left to lag behind.
That is the core drive behind the practice of EMEA Legal Counsels. Our selected speaker on the topic, the Managing Partner at EMEA Legal Counsels, Alaa Zeineddine is always up on modern legal practice trend – which granted him exclusivity to write for world leaders such as the ILO and the World Bank.
Being an early adopter is getting Alaa Zeineddine to grow fast ahead of the competition at a very young age. He is constantly hard at work, cementing his thought leadership reputation in his areas of practice, to ensure never missing out on key opportunities to grow his firm and its recognition. This is increasingly granting him credibility, while opening up grand opportunities for legal assignments and business collaborations from Spain to Kazakhstan.
An overview of his portfolio would include representing the NASCO Insurance Group in Amman, Dubai & Abu Dhabi, acting for Universal Travel & Management Network in Lebanon, representing Mourabet Engineering for a case settlement in Equatorial Guinea, working with Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) and Arabtec, advising on legal matters regarding the Abu Dhabi Plaza project in Astana, and lastly, working with Honeywell for the Abu Dhabi Gas Liquefaction Company. The legal industry is experiencing volatile and dynamic changes as the competition heats up and the pace of mergers increases. However, when it comes to EMEA Legal Counsels, 2016 promises to be an exciting year.
The Seminar was held on Tuesday, May 24th, on IE Premises.
Once again, a heartfelt “thank you” to Campus Life, and the IE community who made such an amazing event possible, and to Mr. Alaa Zeineddine of EMEA Legal Counsels, for his generous enthusiasm to share his impressive academic and professional expertise with our community.
