Legal Week's Private Client Forum Asia unites the most senior and elite advisers to HNWIs and UHNWIs to discuss the most timely and concerning issues across Asia, with an outlook on the rest of the world. The forum, co-chaired by Nicholas Jacob of Forsters and Thelma Kwan of TM Kwan, will focus our minds on the pressing issues that we all face in our day-to-day roles when confronted with problematic and testing situations.

The forum prides itself on the quality of our speakers and the exceptional contributions by all that attend. We value the input and expertise of our attendees and welcome all suggestions and feedback.
