COMMON ISSUES AND CHALLENGES

  • The need for top quality legal advice has never been greater. That advice must be strategic and commercial; pragmatic and effective; and must be communicated clearly to the business.
  • General Counsels are being asked to reconcile tighter control of their legal spend with unpredictable spikes in demand for legal services with no approval to take on additional legal headcount.
  • Increasingly, CFOs are insisting that corporate overheads (and that includes legal) are funded on a “marginal cost” basis – with full cost transparency.
