ACC Europe Legal Ops Logo

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.
