Corporate Counsel Forum 2011May 15 - 17, 2011Westin Mission Hills Resort in Palm Springs, CA

General counsel often find themselves at the hub of their enterprise. Even when working behind the scenes, the role of in-house counsel is no longer simply to advise senior management as to legal issues. Instead, they must champion initiatives that catalyze both top- and bottom-line strategic growth. They must monetize corporate assets and derive value from transactions such as mergers and acquisitions not ordinarily thought of as opportunities for growth. They must optimize costs and third-party relationships with outside counsel, and they must dictate strategy and navigate delicate corporate silos when the very life of the company is at stake. At the end of the day, general counsel must become a core part of corporate strategy in order to remain relevant and become indispensable.

And then remain the pure legal responsibilities of the traditional in-house role, which by no means has diminished in importance. Mastering new anti-corruption regimes and creating the necessary culture of compliance required thereby, managing global data privacy issues, and protecting individual directors and officers from liability for alleged human rights abuses these are only a few of the concerns with which every general counsel must contend.
