About In-House Counsel Worldwide (ICW) – taken from ICWS 2014

The ICW group was formed from an affiliation group of 7 in-house counsel associations from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong in October 2011. The purpose of the group is:

“Uniting the Global in-house legal community, for the benefit of all in-house counsels, their organisations and the profession, through cooperation and collaboration.”

The United Kingdom is ICW's latest member, bringing the number of countries officially represented in ICW to 8.

APCCA, the Asia Pacific Corporate Counsel Alliance, is represented in ICW through Singapore (Singapore is, by rotation, APCCA’s current Secretary General).  APCCA represents corporate counsel associations in India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, South Korea, Sri Lanka and Singapore.
