COVID-19 and beyond: Challenges and new strategies for in-house counsel and external lawyers

Online

07 May 2020  /  14:00 - 14:45


The COVID-19 pandemic will reshape the business models of companies and in-house counsel will have to adapt to new ways of working. What future challenges do they foresee for their legal departments? What are their priorities in these uncertain times?

Leaders from the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) will join AIJA’s in-house counsel members to address these questions and discuss about how the cooperation between in-house and outside counsel has changed and could evolve these days. The discussion will be moderated by Friederike Henke, President of AIJA’s SCILL Commission and Jérôme Debras, Vice-President of AIJA’s In-house Counsel Commission.

Join us on Thursday 7 May,  from 14:00 to 14:45 CET.

The registration is free for non-member in-house counsel interested in attending. In case you would like to register, please email us at office@aija.org.
