General counsel of the future
The role of general counsel has taken a distinctive turn in recent years. As a result of this development, expectations are climbing for general counsel and the legal department to provide so much more than legal advice in order to add visible value in a business context. This requires an understanding of and insight into the strategic opportunities and challenges of the business.
