Welcome to the 4th Annual Chief Legal Officer Exchange

We are moving into a new era in which everything will change, not just climate. Everyone and every business will be affected from one end to the other. The capture and movement of data is currently up in the air as a result of the invalidation of the EU Safe Harbor provisions, with quick resolution already dashed, and China’s laws and enforcement around data making many business processes difficult. Business facilitation payments are up globally, creating the conditions for increased litigation forthcoming.

The Exchange will be animated by recent events, i.e., how did “Dieselgate” happen at Volkswagen? What did Legal know and when did they know? How do you, can you, foster a risk aversion culture as part of your pre-litigation strategy without becoming the sales prevention department and still help the company get after the business at hand? Is your organization prepared for climate-oriented regulations and disruptions? Join us to network and benchmark with your senior colleagues on these major issues and more. Seating is limited.

What's New for 2016?
