‚ÄčThe challenges facing in-house counsel today, both internal and external, are unprecedented. Consider crisis management in the #MeToo era, or how to deal with the continued (and ever more powerful) threat of cyberattacks. At the same time, in-house lawyers must research and implement legal innovation in their departments. Our presenters can help. They go over the most effective approaches to the ever-shifting challenges, and they show you how your department — large or small — can best position itself to succeed in the coming years.
  • Understand the best crisis management approaches and your duties in the #MeToo era
  • Learn how to deal with the continued (and ever more powerful) threat of cyberattacks
