|Event Date/Time: Feb 18, 2009||End Date/Time: Feb 19, 2009|
*Business people expecting the in-house lawyers to absorb more and more activity which they do not feel inclined or equipped to handle.
*The need to keep legal spend under tight control.
*More at stake with increased regulation and greater vigilance on the part of those affected by the organisation's activities.
*It is vital that business managers, the in-house function and the external advisers agree what their respective roles should be in the management of legal risk.
