Embracing the global crisis as an opportunity to navigate transformation within your legal operations

Why You Should Attend?
The first quarter of 2020 created a seismic wave of change for every single individual, as COVID-19 swept the globe and a worldwide pandemic was declared. Resources have been cut and processes have been disrupted as offices and legal professionals navigate through lockdowns. While this crisis has certainly caused disruption around the world, it has also catalysed General Counsels and legal function leaders to re-strategise their operations. The general counsel has to step up to ensure that ethics and compliance are considered in key strategy decisions.

Join us and find out how to harness your skills to navigate through this new normal. The time is now for Legal and Compliance officers to step up and lead the strategy, operations and governance of the organisation with the latest technology and strategy. Being one of our big annual events, this year the event will focus on:
• Navigating the Transformative Journey
• Manage Disputes during COVID
• Data Privacy Health-check
• Financial Crime Compliance
• Optimising your Legal Department with Agile Methods
• Post Pandemic: Key Strategies for your Legal Team
