The General Counsel's Role in Risk Management
Date & Time
Thursday, April 18, 2019, 11:00 AM - 11:40 AM
The session will examine operational and strategic risk assessment that moves beyond the role of legal. As the role of the GC has expanded, so too has its role and relationship with managing company risk and legal interaction with various functions in the company. This panel aims to move the conversation forward on where should risk mitigation be allocated and who should accept liability. What should the lawyer’s role be? How should General Counsel and Chief Risk Officers work together?
