The corporate counsel is uniquely positioned to provide (and is responsible for providing) the board with support. This webcast will explore the role of corporate counsel in: 

  • Verifying that processes are in place to assist in identifying issues and information for board attention

  • Engaging the board and management in a discussion of expectations about how, when, and in what circumstances information will be provided

  • Developing questions that the “Persuasive Counselor” should ensure that the directors ask themselves about strategy and risk.

  • “Recalibrating Board Thinking” - Counsel must see to it that boards recalibrate their thinking in decision-making and oversight to deal with what may have become a “crisis norm.”
