April saw the launch of perhaps our most radical new endeavour in the GC Powerlist series up to this point, as we seek to highlight in-house lawyers who have done the most to forward sustainability and renewability initiatives.

Turnout was exceptional, with over 200 individuals in attendance, all waiting in anticipation for the award ceremony and speeches from the guest of honour, Minister for Sustainability and the Environment of Singapore Grace Fu, and Rajah & Tann Singapore Managing Partner Patrick Ang.
