Singapore (PRWEB) February 12, 2014
With this new committee, both the alumni network and the university will be in a better position to strengthen the McGill presence as well as mutual professional support and friendship building in Singapore and the Asia Pacific region as many alumni use Singapore as a hub and have joined past events.
This committee can be contacted at singapore.alumni(at)mcgill(dot)ca or you can email Caroline Berube directly at cberube(at)hjmasialaw(dot)com if you have any questions. The committee is dedicated to organizing at least one McGill networking event per month in Singapore.
About Caroline Berube
Caroline graduated from McGill University with a BCL and LL.B degree and completed her studies at the National University of Singapore with a focus on Chinese laws. Caroline began her legal career working in Singapore for a French law firm and subsequently was taken over by a British law firm. During that period, she represented international corporate clients and banks in asset-financing and M&A cross-border transactions, travelling to various Asian countries in the course of her work. In 2002, she moved to China to be part of the rapidly developing legal industry there, and joined a Chinese law firm specializing in corporate law. Since then, her career has focused on Chinese corporate law and commercial practice, an area in which she has built up well-respected expertise amongst many European, Asian and North American clients. Caroline is especially well-regarded for advising clients on the Asian legal structure of their companies, based on her sound understanding of the pitfalls and advantages of most Asian jurisdictions.
