Today’s General Counsel wear more hats than ever. They manage an internal team, maintain relationships with outside counsel, and of course think critically about how to mitigate risk. They are also a strategic partner to the business, lending legal expertise to important business decisions that are crucial to the organization’s continued success. Indeed, the modern GC has more challenges and opportunities than ever.
Consero’s January 2015 General Counsel Data Survey Report developed in partnership with CDS Legal and CPA Global, was produced in connection with two invitation-only events hosted by Consero Group in the Fall of 2014 for General Counsel from Fortune 1000 companies based in the U.S. and Europe. While the survey was limited to 49 participants, the answers provide valuable insight into the challenges, concerns, and opportunities of this group of senior legal executives.
