Introduction to Expatriates in Asia / Legal Practice Seminar for Business /OAL Webinar Series


Introduction to Expatriates in Asia / Legal Practice Seminar for Business /OAL Webinar Series

As domestic demand shrinks and competition intensifies in Japan, many companies, regardless of their compensation, are expanding overseas in search of new markets. While the head office in Japan expect local subsidiaries to expand the market and speed up business growth in the local country, management resources to survive the competition tend to be concentrated on sales and marketing, and the establishment of back-office management systems for local subsidiaries tends to end up behind with everything. However, as business becomes more global in scale, the legal system to ensure the proper operation of a company is becoming stricter every year from a global perspective. In recent years, compliance, especially in Asian countries, has become even more stringent than that in Japan, and what is required of expatriates is sifting not only “business growth” but also “managing a local subsidiary with the flexible response in accordance with legal systems which is complex and frequently changes, while growing the business.”

This time, One Asia Lawyers Group /Bengoshi Hojin One Asia will hold a Legal Practice Seminar for Business for expatriates, directors, and contract managers who have been newly assigned to countries in Southeast Asia, South India, and Oceania, as well as for legal departments, compliance departments, and overseas business departments that support such people from Japan.

This webinar series is designed for expatriates, directors, and contract managers in Southeast Asia, South India, and Oceania to acquire knowledge of business practices and laws related to business in each country. The webinar will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the basic legal knowledge in each country. Especially, the webinar is not limited to the mere acquisition of legal knowledge but also provides practical information that is essential from a business perspective, such as how to negotiate with local companies, how to manage the labor of local personnel, and how to manage receivables in Asian countries.

In particular, due to the impact of Covid 19 and other factors, many companies are forced to work remotely, and we will focus on how the management of companies in each country must manage and supervise their workers while working remotely in this seminar series.
