Managing a business — A better understanding of the dance between managers and the legal team

Corporate lawyers who excel in their practice are often called upon to share the key to their success. The qualifications you need to practise in business are no secret. At minimum, you’ve got to have in-depth knowledge of the company’s priorities and issues, business acumen focused on issue resolution and a keen ability to work in a multidisciplinary team. However, opportunities such as these for lawyers to hear their client’s and employer’s perspectives are few and far between.

An inspiring panel and topical themes — Hosted by Anne-Marie Dussault, Attorney

This inaugural panel features corporate leaders along with a member of their legal team.

Panel members are from well-known entities like the National Bank, Ivanhoé Cambridge and Sanofi-Aventis. With a discussion expertly hosted by attorney Anne-Marie Dussault as the backdrop, they will let attendees in on their personal views and visions of the corporate lawyer’s role.

Panelists will be encouraged to focus their discussion the following main topics:

  • Lawyers in business: Why are they there, and who’s right for the job?
  • Legal versus business risks: Can a line be drawn between the two?
  • The company’s reputation: Is it purely a business risk, and who’s responsibility is it?
  • How does one handle disagreements resulting from a legal counsel’s recommendation?
  • Assessing a corporate lawyer’s productivity: Must his or her work necessarily have an impact on the company’s bottom line?

*Training by a recognized provider for the purposes of mandatory continuing education – 2.5  hours.
An attestation of attendance will be emailed after the activity.
