Please join us on 23 November 2022 (2.00pm – 3.15pm) for a webinar hosted by The Centre for Legal Leadership on the role of the in-house lawyer in handling a crisis.
Unexpected and sometimes catastrophic events can arise in many different contexts. The impact will vary but may include significant harm to people or the environment, an interruption to business operations, a major financial reversal or long-term reputational damage.
This webinar will look at the role of in-house lawyers in handling crises in their organisations, particularly in relation to assessing risk and impact, as well as planning and implementation. It will also consider whether the lawyer’s role has changed, or will change, in the light of lessons learned from the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The discussion will be led by our speakers, Sharon Blackman OBE, Managing Director and General Counsel at Citi, and Peter King, Legal Advisor to the Treasury.
