The role of the legal counsel in leading their companies through corporate crisis is more critical than ever; the prevalence of cyberattacks, the increase in local and cross border regulatory enforcement, the growing influence and speed of new media, and the intricacy of third parties and supply chains, have compounded the complexities and pressure legal counsels face in a crisis.
Join John Macpherson, Senior Partner at Control Risks, as he briefs then role-plays these hypotheticals in a workshop. Participants can expect an interactive session discussing their options and choices for each scenario, and hearing some of the actions Control Risks’ clients have taken in similar situations, the subsequent outcomes, and key lessons.
*This event is strictly for in-house counsel only.
*Shorts, t-shirts, bermudas and flip flops are not permitted in Maxwell Chambers.
