Join us for our annual in-house counsel training session which this year will investigate how best to deal with potential legal risks to your business in the current climate.

Data breaches. Whistleblowing. Defective products. Political turmoil. Economic shocks. Social media. Each year businesses face an ever-growing host of risks from every part of society.

However, the biggest threat is approaching them in silos. Risk can’t be compartmentalised. To contain it and reduce it you need to zoom out. Step away from the micro and take in the macro. Put down the microscope and take out the telescope. Make the links that people typically miss.

What should in-house counsel’s role be in monitoring the wider risk environment? What contribution can you make to the business? And how do you balance the need to do things right with the desire to do the right thing?

This is the go-to event for General Counsel and Heads of Legal to understand the proper way to assess and respond to legal risk. You’ll hear from experts across the firm, as well as other risk specialists and senior in-house counsel. You’ll also be able to listen and contribute to a panel discussion about what legal’s role in risk management should be in 2018 and beyond.

This event will give you the guidance you need to navigate the increasingly tricky risk environment. Included in the day will be the opportunity to book a short surgery session with one of our experts to address any pressing issues.
