Description

While in-house teams continue to grow and examples of General Counsel with increased influence are more prolific, the impact of the legal function can still be muted. Moreover, while there is still plenty of talk of "demonstrating value" - how to clearly articulate value beyond cost reduction remains a challenge.

This program was recorded as part of ALM & Corporate Counsel's Annual General Counsel East Virtual Conference East on  September 15th, 2020.
