The Corporate Counsel Show: Lessons from ‘constant firefighting’
In this special episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, produced in partnership with LOD, we explore the phenomenon of “constant firefighting” that law department leaders are facing, as well as trends around artificial intelligence, data fluency, and ESG.
Host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by LOD head of market insights Mark Dodd and Canon Oceania chief legal counsel David Field to discuss the findings from LOD’s recently released annual Global Survey Report, how and why general counsel feel like they are constantly putting out fires, the extent to which GCs are currently exploring AI, increases in data fluency, and how and why the priorities of Australia-based law department leaders differ to their global counterparts.
The trio also delve into the need for investment in capability and building appropriate systems, entropy in human systems, overcoming the need for constant firefighting, the strategic importance of ESG, and broader reflections on LOD’s survey findings and what they mean for law departments across the country, as the new year approaches.
