About the Seminar
As experienced practitioners who have had both outside and in-house counsel positions, we know first-hand about the steep learning curve that can be associated with adapting to an in-house counsel role. Outside counsel necessarily works with the PLF looking over their shoulders, and there is a natural tendency to become risk adverse. In-house counsel has to become comfortable with a role that assesses and takes on risk as part of a team focused on achieving business objectives.
Whether you’re the only lawyer in the room for a small company or taking on a supervisory role for diverse specialists in a larger legal department, you’ll need to set up for one-stop shopping. You may have to build a legal department on a shoestring. If you’re joining a startup, particularly in the technology sector, you’ll also want to build an exit plan into your career management strategy and negotiate a good severance package. We’ll offer practical tips in all of these areas.
You’ll have an opportunity to get up-to-speed in a number of key substantive areas for in-house counsel. These include human resources, raising capital, government regulation, and the ethical issues that can arise if the C Suite runs amok. We’ll also have some cutting-edge content for anticipating issues arising from emerging disruptive technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and use of blockchain technologies for contracting.
Join us for what promises to be a very informative advanced conference, and network with your peers at the reception at the end of the first day.
