The work of this group of legal executives on such issues impacts virtually every element of a large corporate entity—from HR to IT to Finance and beyond. As such, the chief litigation officer requires the necessary budget and personnel, strong partnerships with outside counsel, and efficient processes to protect their organizations from risk and support the business in other ways.
