The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) is the world's largest organization serving the professional and business interests of attorneys who practice in the legal departments of corporations, associations, nonprofits and other private-sector organizations around the globe.

Join ACC

Corporate legal departments in Europe, as elsewhere globally, are focusing on advancing legal operations – optimising how people, processes and technology are deployed to improve efficiency and cost-effectiveness in the delivery of legal services. Many general counsel are now delegating responsibility for legal operations to a deputy GC or establishing a dedicated legal operations function that may or may not be led by a lawyer.

Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) has partnered with Consilio, and is hosting a bi-monthly series of virtual roundtables that focus on how different legal operations functions are managed in European companies, drawing on the ACC Legal Operations Maturity Model framework.

Hans Albers, President of ACC Europe and Chief of Staff & Head of World Wide Legal Operations at Juniper Networks based in Amsterdam, takes 90 seconds to talk through what is driving the remarkable rise of legal operations and what ACC is doing to support it in Europe.
