Celebrating 20 years as the Premier Forum Designed For and By General Counsel from Multinational Companies!
Join hundreds of General Counsel and senior legal leaders in Chicago this October for General Counsel Conference Midwest (formerly SuperConference). For 2021, we will be celebrating 20 years as a premier event in the industry by delivering key insights and practical solutions today's general counsel need to manage and better leverage C-Suite relationships, prevent/mitigate the risks of a cyber attack, successfully overcome a litigation crisis, do more with fewer resources and MUCH MORE.

General Counsel Conference Midwest continues to draws a senior level audience of in-house counsel from multinational companies in the US. While the event is focused toward senior-level in-house counsel, given the issues and nature of the content, it also draws participation from non-legal C-Suite executives as well as law firm senior partners. Job functions include: CLO (Chief Legal Officer), GC (General Counsel), AGC (Assistant General Counsel) and deputy GC, law firm senior partners, attorneys and corporate executives.
