For many in the legal profession, the role of legal counsel offers an opportunity to extend skills beyond the confines of commercial legal practice, to encompass strategic business consulting. While this shift offers new and exciting opportunities for legal practitioners, there can emerge key areas of deficiency in the type and grade of skill required to become an effective legal and business leader.

Key topics to be covered at the event include:

- Aligning the General Counsel’s role with the strategic direction of the organisation to deliver higher value to executive management

- Managing legal and emerging risks by understanding e-discovery and risk associated with emerging technologies

- Optimising workflow in the legal department with legal process outsourcing

- Understanding cost controls and benchmarks to ensure an optimum balance between cost efficiency and effectiveness
