There can be many benefits that come from a 'globalized' legal function from providing rapid regional expertise to creating a more diverse work environment. However, specific challenges can also appear from establishing a remote, digital, and flexible work environment, a more astute understanding and sensitivity towards cultural differences, and ensuring that the legal function supports the core and regional business objectives.
