The role of general counsel is ever changing. Most recently, the in-house legal function is finding itself balancing between offering legal support to the business, risk management, compliance and corporate governance. These new roles create new challenges and a need to work smarter.

As legal becomes more integrated in to the overall business strategy of the modern organisation, the pressure to manage legal and business risk in a proactive and systematic manner is more apparent than ever.

In addition to this, general counsel are increasingly having to justify legal spend and show demonstrable value to the organisation. These pressures combined with ever-more complicated external relationships mean there is a real and present need for clarity and solutions.

This senior level forum will bring together both client and firm to discuss how these trends are altering the way legal services are delivered. As a result we will be covering aspects of how technology can aid in achieving these goals. By having an open and direct conversation around the value add services and differentiators you will take away tangible points for action.
