GC Meet 2019 “Leading Experts Meeting for understanding new developments in the Legal Industry"
There is a subtle shift taking place in the part played by in-house counsel from sticking to recognizing risks and supplying legal advice to evolving into a business-partner and enabler of sorts. However, this is not without its fair share of hazards. Hence, the makeover must come with a disclaimer that members of the in-house legal team possess the requisite skills to transform from being sole legal services’ providers to managers of an entire ecosystem of legal services’ providers. It is our belief that such services be strengthened by innovative technology solutions.
Legal Teams of the Future: What need to be done with New Technologies coming in, The Worldwide Changing Legal Landscape, Dealing with Demands of Multiple Regulator, Ethical Conflict & Others. How the General Counsel Should Act & React to such Situations? What Should Be Strategies of a GC While Dealing With Business? Do they think that you are a Super Hero? What Skills GC should have to be a Super Hero?
We see the in-house role changing from being that of risk spotters and general advisors to becoming strategic partners and business enablers. However, this shift in focus comes with risks. An in-house legal team needs to ensure that its members have the necessary skills to manage the transition from being the sole source of legal services to a position where they are managing an eco-system of legal services providers. We believe the Legal Era Community GC Meet will help in-house counsel understand their own demands for external legal services through knowledge sharing & Peer coaching. Legal Era Member network helps In-House Lawyers Learn, Engage, Develop & Grow.
In-house lawyers need to decide what work must be prioritised, what should be insourced and outsourced, and what should be stopped or transferred. Meet the lower-cost providers at the Meeting sessions. Partnering individuals with people who have different skill sets so that learning becomes a two-way process in which both parties benefit.
