Small Law Dept. and Career Development Forums: Leading from the Legal Perch: A Diversity of Perspectives


LIVE ONLY at Valo Park, 7950 Jones Branch Drive, McLean, Virginia.


What does it take to effectively lead in a legal department that is multi-generational, multi-cultural, and often includes remote team members from across the world in today’s demanding 24/7 business environment?  What does it take to lead cross-departmentally?  Does legal department size matter?  How can you, as an aspiring leader, contribute to your team and build your leadership muscle?  What competencies are critical? 

Effective leadership is essential to successful organizational performance.  Whether leading a large or small legal team in a large or small company, the ability to lead both your team as well as cross-departmentally can be both exciting and challenging. Please join us for a vibrant and pragmatic conversation with a diverse group of legal department leaders, and plan to share your own insights and experiences.


Presented by:  Charlotte Bernard, Corporate Counsel, Lotame Solutions Inc.; Cynthia  Boyle, General Counsel, Employment-Willis Towers Watson; Patrick Samsel, Corporate Counsel & Senior Contracts Manager, Fors Marsh Corp.; and Gregory Watchman, Managing Associate General Counsel-Employment Law and Employee Relations, Freddie Mac.  

Moderated by: Lisa B. Horowitz, JD, MSOD, Founder and Chief Strategist, Attorney Talent Strategy Group, LLC.


Lunch will be provided on-site beginning at 12:00 p.m. The program will begin at 12:30 p.m. (LIVE ONLY)
