Twitter: #TransatlanticGC  @LegalWeekEvents

The Transatlantic General Counsel Summit, chaired by Andrew Garard of ITV, provides a platform for elite general counsel in the UK, Europe & USA to identify and determine the meaningful difference the legal function can make when contributing to a company’s strategy. How will you deliver the competence and coverage to meet future challenges and deliver sustainable value to the business?

General Counsel are now operating in a new business environment brought about by regulatory change, increased risk and a shift in the global economy. Never-ending board demands, complex deals in cross-border markets, protecting the corporate reputation, cybersecurity risks … it all adds up to a very long list for the General Counsel and in-house legal function. With all of these complex dynamics this exclusive gathering allows delegates to engage with industry experts and explore the various internal and external touch points which impact the transatlantic legal department head.

The seniority of the audience requires this forum to be an ideas exchange on a peer-to-peer basis. So prepare to immerse yourself in open debates, panels and interactive seminars.
