A webinar presented by the IBA Asia Pacific Regional Forum and supported by the IBA Corporate Counsel Forum

Today’s modern general counsel (GC) wears several hats – compliance officer, risk and crisis manager, strategic adviser, C-suite member, and counsellor in-chief to the chief executive officer and the board. This session will explore these various roles, and the challenges and opportunities faced by GCs and the legal departments they lead as they adopt and assume these roles. The session will also tackle issues that keep them up at night, and identify how external counsels can provide added value and support to GCs and their in-house teams as they navigate the complexities of doing business in the new decade.
