Forum to Be Held 16-18 September in London, England

BETHESDA, MD – (September 1, 2015) – How can General Counsel actively promote an ethical culture without compromising business priorities? Consero Group, an international leader in orchestrating  high-level, invitation-only events for senior executives, will address this topic and other key issues at the 2015 General Counsel Forum to be held 16–18 September at The Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London, England.

“Given the shrinking divide between legal departments and business operations, the role of the General Counsel is more demanding than ever,” said Paul Mandell, Founder & CEO of Consero. “At its 2015 General Counsel Forum in London, Consero will tackle the most pressing legal challenges, providing a unique setting to share the best approaches to increasing efficiency and creating added value in the corporate environment.”

“The Forum will investigate key compliance and ethics issues facing General Counsel, including identifying strategies for antitrust and competition compliance,” said Jessica Druckman, Founder & SVP of Program Development at Consero. “We also will confront topics including how to make prospective concerns known to legislatures and regulators, as well as how much of a department’s budget should be devoted to general compliance matters.”

Additional topics will include:

  • Successful Strategies in Outside Counsel and Vendor Management: In this session, executives will identify common issues encountered when working with outside providers and the strategies to overcome them, as well as how to choose counsel for work outside of Europe.
  • Supporting Growth in New and Emerging Markets: This session will explore strategies to ensure successful global expansion while maintaining a consistent or improving risk profile, as well as how to best gather and manage information regarding international rules and practices.
  • Proving That Legal Departments Are More Than Cost Centres: Topics will include how to define the value GC brings to stakeholders, as well as what performance metrics and benchmarks can be useful for assessing in-house lawyers and evaluating overall law department performance.
