Partner Jenny Colgate will moderate a panel titled "Virtual Teams: Does Remote Working Have A Place In The Future Of The Profession?" at Corporate Counsel's General Counsel Conference 2020, taking place virtually September 15-16, 2020.
No one could have anticipated that 2020 would be the year that the legal profession went virtual. In 2019, we talked as if this was 10 years away. Today, legal departments, law firms, and courts all across the world have embraced and implemented these technologies and new working practices. This transformative shift for the legal profession has brought new opportunities and risks for General Counsel. The imposing risks have been quick to appear, but understanding the opportunities has been much more clouded. In this new digital age, how can you managing a remote workforce, continuing to drive productivity and inclusivity, over these new digital platforms? Panelists from Jobcase Inc., Henry Ford Health System & Health Alliance Plans, and CenterForce USA will share best practices for managing a remote workforce, identify obstacles and risks overcome along the way as well as opportunities for the future, review lessons learnt and key successes from this transformation process, and explore the long term implications. The session will be held on Wednesday, September 16, 2020, from 11:30 am - 12:30 am ET.
The General Counsel Conference is the premier forum for General Counsel to learn, network, and evolve in their roles. With a focus on the in-house counsel’s perspective, sessions will tackle topics covering law department operations & efficiency, and the evolving role of the GC as a business advisor, while also taking a deeper dive into industries like biotech/pharma, finance and real estate, and the regulatory, compliance, and strategic issues they are facing.
