Regulations continue to increase and it appears that this trend will continue. However, as legal and compliance budgets plateau, the focus has turned on finding efficiencies to decrease costs. As the same time, corporate law departments are serving more internal clients than ever.
For in-house counsel charged with assessing and managing the key risk and compliance functions, the stakes have never been higher. This places a further responsibility on an already over-burdened law department beset with competing priorities and limited resources. Although technology, including regtech and AI solutions, can reduce some of the burden, these solutions can be expensive and ultimately require humans to manage their implementation and use.
The use of corporate risk assessments can help guide priorities and the efficient deployment of resources. Risk assessments can also facilitate discussions with the C-Suite and, if necessary, communicated to regulators to demonstrate the company’s commitment to compliance and methodology for addressing risks.
Join us for an educational and thought-provoking panel discussion with a group of seasoned in-house counsel and to learn how some of Chicago’s and the Country’s leading in-house lawyers are able to stretch those limited resources by adopting a comprehensive risk-based approach to mitigating legal, reputational and operational risks.
