Baker McKenzie lawyers regularly work with clients who are brilliant at what they do. Whether they are global logistics giants, famous consumer brands, multinational financial institutions, healthcare conglomerates, natural resource giants, or pioneers in the digital economy, our clients are leaders across almost every corporate sector. But even the most exceptional of business minds can today find themselves stopped in their tracks by the ambiguity, complexity and volatility with which corporates must contend.

Our research has one key purpose: to identify the complexities facing corporates today, and understand how these complexities will evolve in the future. By studying the most pressing and challenging trends faced by business leaders across the Asia Pacific region, we have the opportunity to shine a light on these issues, and work with our clients through events, discussions, meetings and via our longstanding relationships to problem solve. Or, put another way, to simplify business in a complex world.

This report seeks to understand the pressure points business leaders across our region are facing, and to begin the discussion on how corporates can tackle them, a discussion that will continue at key Baker McKenzie events and in further publications throughout the year.

We hope that you find our report an informative and interesting read. If you would like to discuss these findings and possible solutions in greater detail, please contact your Baker McKenzie relationship partner.
Businesses should not fear complexity, but rather embrace it and get in front of it. With change and complexity comes opportunity. A business which actively seeks to engage the new generation of consumers and corporates with creativity and innovation will stay ahead of the game.”
