The most pressing risk and compliance questions in house lawyers are asking

In-house counsel are the strategic risk advisors to their organisations and critical to the industries in which they work. Join us to reflect and reevaluate the issues and challenges faced by the in-house community and gain additional insight and practical advice. Registration for this event will close at 11.59pm on Friday 5 July 2024.

In-house counsel are the strategic risk advisors to their organisations and critical to the industries in which they work. The fact that the in-house sector is the fastest growing legal sector reflects this.  

However in-house counsel and teams must balance their role within the organisation with their duty to the court. They must understand the needs of their internal and external stakeholders by building trusted relationships and influencing, whilst also identifying and advising on the risk and compliance factors.

In a time when the SRA has turned its focus to the in-house counsel community with their Thematic Review in 2023 to their publication of draft guidance targeted to in-house this year, this is a good time to reflect and re-evaluate the issues and challenges they face and offer constructive discussion and advice.  

The main issues that will be addressed in this online event are featured in more detail in the Law Society's publication 'In-house Lawyers' Risk and Compliance Questions and Answers' written by panellist Tracey Calvert. In this session we will be discussing the following:

  • Regulatory duties as an in-house solicitor
  • Best practice solutions, policies and procedures
  • Managing and negotiating with internal clients
  • Relationship with the SRA
  • Litigation pinchpoints
