7:50 pm – How the Modern GC Is Transforming Business Impact
Managing risk and reducing cost for an enterprise are goals at the forefront of every General Counsel’s mind these days. GCs are playing an increasingly strategic role in the C-suite and need to think proactively about how they can reduce their company’s exposure to reputational, financial, and legal risk while also improving the bottom line. Forward-looking legal departments are tackling this imperative by embracing the digitization of legal processes.
