Corporate counsel are challenged to identify ways to contain spend, mitigate risk, take on ever-increasing responsibility, manage a legal supply chain, defend the enterprise and simultaneously advance its business agenda within established risk parameters and the bounds of the law, and proactively identify—and de-fuse—problems before they result in legal exposure. This is not what they learned at law school or during practice. How do they meet these challenges?
In this seminar, Mark invites participants to critically evaluate the nature of an in-house legal department and the role of in-house counsel. How can in-house counsel effectively managing the growing complexity of their legal function within a busi-ness? Beyond technical competence in the law, what kinds of knowledge, skills and attitudes are required? Must in-house legal teams re-imagine their structures and composition and how? And how can in-house counsel be guided by legal and business ethics to navigate the sometimes conflicting demands of being both guardian of the business and an important partner in advancing its commercial interests? If you are an in-house counsel or are thinking of moving into an in-house role, then this is a deeply relevant forum to discuss the issues framed by a global perspective.
