WLA For GC’s

Integrating and making in-house legal departments robust and self-reliant.

GC’s are under enormous pressure, not just to resolve legal issues but to deliver business solutions, play a more strategic role in the leadership team, modernize their legal departments, implement latest technologies, redefine processes, manage crises, risk, compliance and disputes across all functions and departments and handle multiple legal service providers with limited resources.

With various initiatives like ICDT, MCN and WLA specialist groups, we help address the challenges confronting GC’s of corporations around the world.

We drive value, efficiency, and effectiveness across your legal functions and offer our clients expertise across a wide array of industries, specialties, jurisdictions, languages, and cultures.

Whether there is a shortfall in expertise due to short-term leave or a recent departure, or a key project requires an experienced extra set of hands,

Valuing the impact of your legal team

You are under continuous pressure to do more with less and as a result find yourself challenged to justify headcount and budget. We can help you identify, measure and report on the metrics that are most important to your business in order to help you demonstrate the value of the legal function.

 

Advisor to executives and the Board

Controversial situations require senior management and members of the Board to trust that their General Counsel and in-house legal teams will make the right decisions and provide sound counsel at critical junctures. We can support you at those key decision points.

Leveraging our first-hand experience as both General Counsel and members of a Board, we can help you chart a course that meets all of your obligations and addresses your Board’s concerns.

Risk & compliance management

We know how to present on risk issues to Boards and understand the challenges of rolling out global compliance programs and the difficulties that can come when you are asked to ‘clear’ actions – whether it is a matter involving reputation, product liability, regulatory changes or the ever-evolving challenges around cyber-security, we can guide you.

Crisis management

Crises may manifest in a variety of ways and from a variety of sources—but they always require swift and decisive action on the part of the General Counsel. In the wake of a crisis – when even the Board may have its own counsel – count on us to help steer you through the storm.
