Venue: Baur au Lac Hotel, Talstrasse 1, Zurich

Time: 5.30pm

The Legal 500 and GC Magazine invite you to our next GC Summit Switzerland in association with Prager Dreifuss.

At this event we will be discussing 'Disruptive Innovation and the in-house lawyer'.

Hamish Taylor, former CEO Eurostar and Sainsburys Bank

A disruptive innovation creates a new market and value network and eventually displaces established market leading norms. How can lawyers utilise these insights and experiences? How does this play out for lawyers navigating the role of strategic business partner and guardian of ethical boundaries?

Hamish Taylor has made industry disruption a way of life, sometimes through very small changes. He is renowned for taking ideas from one industry to transform the workings of another. This type of thinking is fundamental to disruptive innovation. In his talk, Hamish will adapt his ideas to the reality of the general counsel role today and give key insights into how to disrupt and innovate.

This will be followed by a panel of Switzerland-based general counsel sharing their experiences about their journey navigating innovation, the law and transforming their legal teams through creativity and technology.

The event will be held at Baur au Lac Hotel, Talstrasse 1, Zurich and will start at 5.30pm.
