The Changing Role of General Counsel

Are you ready to assume a more strategic role?

In a recent study of European General Counsel, 54% of respondents noted that forming and implementing business strategy will be growing focus over the next three years. However, when it comes to GCs in smaller corporate legal departments, many feel their focus is predominantly reactive and functional.

As we explore in “The Changing Role of General Counsel", in-house lawyers can accelerate the evolution from legal counsel to strategic-minded business partner by making wise investments in technology. While GCs in smaller organizations often have fewer resources than their counterparts in larger corporate legal departments, this guide sets out to explain how they too can benefit from legal tech, without the cost or complexity.
