  • About this program:
  • The role of General Counsel (GC) is becoming increasingly challenging as GCs’ budgets tighten and business environments become more complex than ever before. Join us for a series of sessions that will help address your top issues. We conducted a survey of your peers and during our inaugural session we will share the results. You will hear from a panel of leading GCs on how they manage their multi-faceted positions and their approaches to dealing with the pain points you indicated - from innovation to staffing. The panel will also focus on the role of law firms in supporting GCs and ways that in-house and outside counsel can work together to build trusted partnerships to more effectively serve their business.
