General Counsel 2015: key conference for in-house lawyers October 2015

LexisNexis is proud to sponsor The Economist Events’ forthcoming annual conference General Counsel 2015. Being held shortly, on October 15th at the Clothworkers’ Hall in London, the event assembles over 120 influential legal leaders, senior executives and innovative thinkers. With panel discussions, presentations and keynote interviews, this is an event not to be missed by in-house lawyers.

This year’s conference theme is Creating Value in a Disruptive World. It focuses on the increasing variety and severity of risks faced by companies in the unstable environment created by today’s rapidly changing business climate. Now more than ever, General Counsel and their legal teams are being called upon to mitigate and manage risks and be the first line of defence in protecting a company’s assets.

How can the legal function deliver value in such a high-risk environment? How can it maximise its contribution to the business? At the event, top level General Counsel plus speakers from outside the legal function will use their extensive experience to tackle these questions, providing invaluable insights on key issues such as:

  • Mitigating and managing external threats
  • Addressing the risks and exploiting the opportunities of the digital economy and new technology
  • Tackling corruption, fraud and third party risk
  • Containing threats to reputation
  • Supporting and shaping the board agenda
  • Maximising corporate relationships with advisors and stakeholders
  • Ensuring your business is value driven rather than rules led.

General Counsel 2015 is an unmissable opportunity to network with in-house leaders and hear fresh, innovative thinking on the challenges currently facing in-house lawyers. Attendees will come away with new ideas about how to innovate the legal function as well as the ability and confidence to lead change to drive growth and performance.
