On stage you can expect to hear from top corporate lawyers, regulators, politicians, and policy makers. In short, the biggest names in USA corporate law today.
The event will help legal leaders of today elevate their role beyond law by equipping them with what they need to operate as successful, efficient, and trusted strategic business advisers in today’s new and exciting paradigm.
The past 2 years have transformed how in-house legal departments operate and deliver services.
General Counsels and Chief Legal Officers have been key in supporting their organizations by reinventing business operations and breaking through barriers which would have previously been considered insurmountable. Legal leaders today must grapple with increasingly complex social, environmental, business, technological and legal challenges whilst managing an effective and efficient legal department in a distributed and disrupted “new normal” for corporate law.
Relatively new and nascent working environments raises both operational and legal challenges, whilst highlighting the need to adapt management, learning and development strategies to energize, engage and retain staff as well as to cultivate the next generation of legal talent.
Ever changing regulations and an increased focus on ESG and Diversity highlights the importance of legal teams not just as a reactive force but as a proactive stakeholder in evaluating risks and opportunity, developing operational policies, and shaping go-to-market strategy.
This new and expanded role is being made possible as technological innovation promises to automate high volume, low value tasks; freeing up time to focus on higher value, more strategic work. But adoption remains slow, in an often tech averse industry.
Legal Operations departments have grown rapidly over the past year with General Counsels and Chief Legal Officers overseeing all the business activities, processes, and people that empower the in-house legal team to serve a company's legal needs using a strategic business approach.
Reuters Events: Legal Leaders USA 2022 will help you elevate your role beyond law by equipping you with what you need to operate as a successful, efficient, and trusted strategic business adviser in this new and exciting paradigm.
The program covers five core areas which are driving or undergoing change across the profession of corporate law in the United States:
Leadership & Strategy
Resourcing & Talent
ESG & Diversity
