CORPORATE COUNSEL FORUM “MANAGING THE LEGAL FUNCTION IN A CRISIS ECONOMY”

28. February 2013

Karanovic & Nikolic is organizing the first annual Corporate Counsel Forum “Managing the Legal Function in a Crisis Economy,” on 28 February 2013 at Resavska 23 in Belgrade. Management topics that will be covered include compliance in a dynamic legal environment and managing the legal function in an economic crisis.

WHAT?

Topics:

- Dealing with management and practical legal issues
- Budget management
- Managing people
- Dealing with management pressure to insource
- Presentation of the results of the Legal Compliance Survey
- Discussion on how to ensure compliance and deal with legal risks in a dynamic and unstable legal environment

Participants:

The participants of this event will be corporate legal counsel/professionals in Serbia that fill a leadership role within their company.

WHY PARTICIPATE? 

In a downturn economy, management of the legal function is becoming increasingly commercial in character. In-house counsel is under enormous pressure from management to insource legal work, requiring new skills, approaches and philosophies from in-house legal teams. The "value" outside law firms provide is under more scrutiny than ever and as a result, even though the global economy gears towards recovery, permanent changes in the relationships between clients and their external counsel have been made. Topics to be discussed are management of the legal function in a crisis economy, managing legal spending and maintaining healthy relationships, compliance, disputes and debt collection in what remains a challenging time for legal counsel.

Sharing ideas and best practices are a useful and tangible method for the development of individual careers and of peer group communities, so take the lead in progressing your corporate role and relationship with your external counsel by sharing your ideas and experience with us at this event.
