Upcoming Webinar


Rise of the General Counsel – Changing Liability in the Digital Era
Wednesday, August 16, 2017
12:00 PM to 1:00 PM ET

Today’s general counsel are moving into the c-suite and engaged in business strategies far beyond just protecting the company from liability. That new expectation and visibility with company executives appears to have opened the door for greater scrutiny from regulatory bodies as well – recent headlines from Yahoo and Uber for example indicate that general counsel need to better understand how executives view their role, where business scrutiny may come from, and what could create legal liability.

Our speakers will provide insights from the general counsel’s office on the evolving business role and expectations that general counsel face, and how to reconcile that with the legal liabilities they must still manage, as well as insights from outside counsel on sharing advice on legal and business liability.
