Harnessing new global research to unlock opportunities for GCs and legal leaders in 2024

This webcast will focus on the headline issues, challenges, trends, and opportunities facing general counsel, chief legal officers and heads of legal as 2024 gets into full swing.

Panellists will reflect on the key takeaways from The General Counsel Report 2024 by FTI Consulting and Relativity, which revealed a cascade of tipping points across technology, digital risk, regulatory activity, and cultural issues.

“Technology is well ahead of where we are as human beings. Data privacy and cybersecurity are the top risks at every board meeting in Australia now. (Businesses) can no longer claim to be a victim when hacked,” one Australian-based GC shared in the report. In this webcast, panellists will discuss the ever-changing landscape for in-house professionals amidst continuing turbulence and volatility in the marketplace and delve into immediate risks law departments are currently facing, as well as the proactive measures needed to future-proof against potential challenges.

2023 was an enormous year for law department leaders, and 2024 will be no different – understanding and appreciating the role and importance of the legal amidst such an environment remains as critical as ever.

Here are some key points we’ll delve into:

  1. The top risks and concerns for law departments in 2024;

  2. Balancing competing urgent priorities at a time of immense pressure for corporate counsel;

  3. How the rapid advent and uptake of new legal technologies shifts operations and attitudes from the law department;

  4. Ongoing fears about having to do more with less, and the consequent sustainability of life in-house, remains at the forefront of minds for law department leaders.
