Event information

Date: Thu 28 Sep 2023 Time: 6.00pm-8.00pm Venue: Brown Rudnick Office, 47th Floor, 7 Times Square, New York, NY 10036

The Legal 500 is proud to partner with Brown Rudnick on this exciting roundtable discussion which will discuss the role of the general counsel in a continually evolving business landscape. For multinational businesses in particular, risks abound across a range of areas, from cybersecurity to supply chain issues, trans jurisdictional brand protection considerations to maintaining an organization’s online presence. The various instruments necessary to equip general counsel for defensive risk management and comprehensive global crisis management will be examined at this topical roundtable discussion.  
Attendees will explore their readiness to foresee risks for their organizations as the business landscape changes. Are they the ‘conscience’ of the company, having to look beyond what is legal and decide what is morally correct? If a crisis arises, do they have internal management protocols in place? This promises to be incomparable experience for attending general counsel and chief legal officers. None other than experts at Brown Rudnick, Benjamin G. Chew and Camille M. Vasquez, Co-Chairs of Brown Rudnick’s Brand & Reputation Management Group, will moderate the discussion.
