ABOUT THE EVENT
The impact of the deepest economic downturn since the 1930s has been particularly acute for the legal profession. The increasing volume and complexity of regulation, retaining control of cost pressures and increased volume of work as the economy recovers have put pressure on the General Counsel and legal teams, who have had to keep up with a constantly changing professional landscape. But times of distress can also be moments of opportunity.
The legal profession, with its track record of adapting to changing practice realities, may therefore end up stronger than ever. For this to happen, the resilience shown by the profession through a double-dip recession and sluggish growth must translate into new opportunities for innovative, well-managed firms with strong leadership and effective financial management. Getting business models into shape as the market grows is therefore imperative.
The Corporate Legal Innovators 2015 will bring together the most innovative in-house legal directors and other key opinion leaders, to discuss and analyse the in-house legal team’s evolution into a commercial function driving economic value for the business, and what innovations are driving the interactions between businesses, in-house departments, law firms, outsourcing providers and new technology.
