Chief Legal Officers know how demanding their jobs are. They have to create and manage effective teams, retain and instruct external counsel, advise their employers on strategic decisions, and implement new technology, all while putting out 20 fires a day.
Some of them work in states of national emergency or economic crisis. Others are forced to lay-off valued team members or otherwise cut costs while maintaining — or improving — their level of service. None of them have it easy.
As part of our continuing effort to provide assistance to those Chief Legal Officers — whether working as General Counsel, Head of Legal, or some other title — we are pleased to announce the publication of the 2017 Corporate Counsel Handbook. For this year's Handbook, which is made possible by Slaughter & May, Wolf Theiss, CMS, and Orban & Perlaki, we invited leading senior in-house attorneys across Central and Eastern Europe to share their advice, instructions, and recommendations with their peers. The result is 96 pages of valuable information, provided by those who know the challenges and demands of the in-house legal role most intimately.
The issue is at the printer now and hard copies will be sent out to subscribers next week. Non-subscribers can obtain copies hard copies by contacting us directly. In the meantime, we encourage you to visit the electronic version here. You'll be glad you did.
