Inside the Mind of Today’s GC: The GCs’ outlook on the challenges and opportunities that define 2024’s in-house legal landscape


Today’s General Counsel (GCs) face a rapidly changing legal landscape. From budget constraints to staffing shortages, technological innovations, and evolving compliance requirements, GCs must adapt quickly to stay ahead. Axiom, in partnership with Wakefield Research, conducted a comprehensive global survey of GCs to uncover their biggest challenges and how they’re overcoming them.

During this webinar, we’ll share:

  • Practical tips for managing budget cuts and staffing shortages.
  • How GCs are embracing new technologies and complying with emerging regulations.
  • How GCs are streamlining administrative tasks and improving team structure.
  • Explore ways to save costs by outsourcing and using flexible legal talent providers.

This webinar is for General Counsel, in-house legal teams, and legal operations professionals who want to stay informed and make the right decisions for their organisations.

Don’t miss out on these valuable insights. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of the current in-house legal landscape and learn how GCs are preparing for the future.
