With budget constraints, increased regulatory obligations and ever-evolving legal department responsibilities - in-house counsel are now, more than ever, under pressure to find new ways to be more productive and demonstrate their value.

At the same time, the influence and strategic impact of the legal department within business continues to grow - with legal teams working towards creating value for the company rather than simply minimising losses.

There is also an unprecedented choice in terms of legal service providers and how senior counsel can structure their legal department and technology developments continue to offer a myriad of options to work differently, smarter and deliver efficiencies.

In today’s world, General Counsel has more choice and opportunity.

At the heart of this perfect storm, however, lies a critical question: “What is an effective and efficient legal team?”

What’s more…how is such a team measured? How do you demonstrate its value to the business? How do you build, nurture and grow in business speak - a high-performance team?

This interactive panel debate – held in association with The Law Society and the LexisNexis In-house Knowledge Manager Forum - will explore the strategic focus for General Counsel in creating an efficient and effective legal team. Discussion topics will include:

  • How to build influence and impact
  • Different ways of working with traditional and alternative legal service providers
  • Use of technology
  • Talent retention and development – particularly among younger millennial lawyers
  • Diversity and inclusion strategy
  • Do you need a legal operations role?
