Collaboration At The Top - Law Firm Leadership & The GC

October 19, 2021

Virtual Event

McGuireWoods Chairman, Jon Harmon, spoke at Legal Leaders 2021 discussing the topic “Collaboration at the top – Law firm leadership & the GC”.

This Legal Leaders exclusive Masterclass session for law firms and in house counsel leaders discusses what motivates choice of external counsel, what firms can do to become more attractive to GCs and how the two can better understand each other to ultimately enable these two functions to work together in a more synergetic way. Jon was joined by Capital One General Counsel Matthew Cooper.

Topics include:

  • Preparing your in-house team to benefit from the legal tech stack of your external counsel
  • Ensuring that the ESG and DE&I policies of your external counsel align with those of your organization for harmonious cooperation
  • Understanding and adapting to the GC’s evolution from a traditional legal function to a strategic business partner to enhance your value
