The Modern General Counsel Survey Results: What is Driving the Enterprise Legal 2.0 Evolution
The modern general counsel must be strategically relevant and innovative to thrive in the digital age. More than a cost center, the GC is becoming an influential C-Suite partner expected to improve business outcomes in addition to managing legal risk, meeting compliance mandates, and safeguarding the organization’s reputation. To execute, they must do so in the face of a new regulatory environment with greater compliance scrutiny, increased volume and complexity of data, disruptive technologies, resourcing and budgetary constraints and departmental attrition.
Join Alex Reinhardt, Associate General Counsel, OpenText and Wendy Cole, Director, Product Marketing, OpenText as they discuss highlights from the OpenText / Corporate Counsel Business Journal Modern General Counsel Survey and Report, including:
- The shifting and evolving role of the GC
- Key departmental priorities and challenges in 2024 and beyond
- Technology investment planned or leveraged to support legal activities
- Critical tools needed to maximize ROI and minimize risk
Gain insight into the key priorities and challenges for enterprise legal departments as they transform their departments to Enterprise Legal 2.0 and learn what outside counsel can do to support those priorities.
