The event organised by ADWA and Walder Wyss Attorneys will provide you with first-hand expert knowledge from German-speaking lawyers who are not only active on the ground but also have their centre of life in Asia and are therefore very familiar with the latest developments. Businesses from German-speaking countries that have already established business relations with East and Southeast Asia, and those that are currently considering becoming active and showing more presence in that region, can benefit from these insights and ask the individual lawyers in-depth questions during the aperitif. The event with Asian and Swiss experts offers Swiss companies in particular a special opportunity to gain compact knowledge.
Registrations can be made at email@example.com including name, e-mail address and company name.
*The event will be conducted in German.
