In a world of increasingly tight cost measures, new complexities and global uncertainty how can financial services businesses create an impressive and effective in-house legal function? This session will focus on three key areas to optimise the in-house legal function both now and in the future:
- Finding and developing talent
- Identifying key skillsets for your team
- How to achieve excellence in a cost-effective way
With an experienced and diverse group, we will look at the opportunities and challenges facing in-house functions and how one can make changes that are sustainable and ultimately successful. You will come away with some new thinking and practical ideas.
This roundtable session will be led by Ben Williams, Managing Director of Peerpoint and Catriona Blamire, Head of Client Development at Peerpoint. Working closely with an array of clients has enabled us to build up a detailed understanding of the challenges and pressures experienced by in-house legal functions. Our knowledge and expertise in identifying, supporting and matching top talent also gives us a unique perspective on lawyers and their careers.
This roundtable is part of the In-house Financial Services virtual event taking place from 30 June – 2nd July. The event will bring together 200+ in-house legal counsel and compliance professionals from across the financial services sector to discuss, benchmark and exchange knowledge.
