Leading companies urgently need their Legal Leaders to take a proactive role in mitigating threats, collaborating across disparate business teams, and shaping strategic decision making. Success across these tasks is critical for any modern General Counsel wishing to keep the top job and protect their organization’s reputation.
A robust and tech savvy Legal Operations function is vital to the optimal running of this department which is rapidly evolving beyond law. Legal Operations professionals must help shed the legal department’s reputation of a conservative and reactive cost centre by implementing strategies aligned with organizational leadership to ensure that the in-house legal department operates smoothly and effectively to deliver excellent value.
Reuters Events: Legal Leaders USA 2023 (3 – 4 April, Dallas) is uniting 200+ General Counsel and Heads of Legal Operations to make the transition from company lawyers to strategic business advisers. Crafting a winning partnership between Legal Ops and the GC, driving ESG priorities forward, and embedding legal across the enterprise to deliver strategic value are the essential ways Reuters Events is helping in-house counsel elevate legal beyond law.
