Forecasted issues for in-house lawyers in 2020
Senior in-house counsel Claire Bibby joins host Jerome Doraisamy on this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show to take a deep dive into the key trends she foresees for the in-house sector this year.
Claire explains why climate change liability risk has become such a prominent issue for in-house lawyers, how royal commissions and inquiries have prompted an increase in professional negligence claims, and why in-house pro-bono work might rise with the implementation of new initiatives and guidelines.
She also shares her predictions around a surge in in-house industrial relations claims, the potential implementation of policy in regards to gender pay gap transparency, and moreover, how all these issues can be perceived as opportunities for growth in the in-house space.
