Description

***This is a non-CLE seminar***

Before the pandemic, the role of general counsel was in constant evolution to be more business focused. Now, agility and business acumen are keys to success. Because of this shift in responsibilities, there is no going back to the days where in-house counsel leaders only provide the business with legal analysis and business support—the pendulum has swung too far. In-house leaders will continue to be asked to play bigger roles in how companies are run, so you must be ready to not only provide quick, critical insight that directly influences risk management, but also drive company culture and business strategies.

To better understand the shifting nature of these responsibilities, Corporate Counsel has conducted an exclusive survey with senior in-house counsels and legal leaders to gauge how their relationship with the board has changed over the last year. Our research also asked what role these senior in-house counsels now play in driving business results within their organization as well as how compliance, data privacy, cybersecurity and other issues now play into the decision-making process.
