6.50pm The strategic role of in-house counsel
GCs of today – and tomorrow – need more than legal knowledge alone. Faced with managing complex, unpredictable and often contradictory challenges, what toolkit of skills and methodologies do you need to have in your armoury to truly excel?
This inaugural Ireland GC forum brings together a panel of leading in-house counsel to share perspectives on the ever-changing demands of senior in-house lawyers. They will offer best practices to help you maximise the success and contribution of your legal teams, giving you confidence that you’re doing the right things, in the right areas and with the right people and skills to drive value both for your function and your wider business.
- Reimagining the value of in-house legal teams to demonstrate their impact as strategic business leaders.
- How in-house counsel have responded to the enhanced need for strategic decision-making under pressure. How the Covid-19 pandemic has required greater agility and new approaches.
- Building stronger engagement with your teams and retaining top talent. And the lessons learnt to maintain morale through a new era of hybrid working.
- How can in house counsel can contribute to the more practical aspects of integrating sustainability, diversity and innovation – the sharing of ideas, best practice and thought leadership.
