With unprecedented change impacting in-house lawyers, a new session has been added to this year’s Corporate Counsel Summit to help general counsel manage their teams effectively.
The Corporate Counsel Summit – brought to you by Lawyers Weekly and LOD – is taking place next Friday, 20 March at Sydney’s Hyatt Regency.
With just over a week away, a new face has been added to this year’s impressive line-up of speakers.
Andrew Watts, chief information officer at US-headquartered e-discovery giant, Relativity, will lead an enlightening session dubbed: “Ahead of the curve: How GCs can stay on top of tech trends”.
Mr Watts’ session comes in light of a raft of unprecedented technological change affecting corporate counsel and in turn, altering the future role of a general counsel and the foundations of legal services.
Dialling in from the US, Mr Watts will take attendees through the macro trends impacting most organisations today, providing insight into information from abroad and discuss how local GCs can futureproof their businesses.
Throughout his presentation, Mr Watts will also provide tips and tricks on how to develop a more tech-savvy voice and how to connect the dots between cloud analytics, data management and cyber security to maximise client engagement.
“We’re thrilled to have Andrew and the team at Relativity on board for this year’s Corporate Counsel Summit,” said editor of Lawyers Weekly, Emma Ryan.
“Throughout the past decade there have been considerable movements in the US regarding tech and the way in-house lawyers have had to adapt their skill set as a result – a trend we’re certainly seeing play out in the Australian marketplace now.
“I’m confident that the learnings Andrew has acquired will leave attendees walking away more informed and ready to take on any kind of digital disruption to their organisation.”
