The role of the General Counsel in navigating the global risk landscape
We are pleased to have collaborated with Winmark to produce this year’s edition of the Looking Glass report. The annual report investigates trends and developments that impact senior legal leaders, both in-house and in private practice.
This year's report research carried out Jan - March captures opinions just as COVID19 was emerging, giving us one last glimpse of the 'pre-COVID' concerns of business. It also tracks their thinking as it progressed, providing us with some useful clues as to what the pandemic has done to shift opinions. We have seen how COVID-19 has accelerated changes; some possibly reversed and how new dimensions of risk have been introduced. Also how legal departments have supported their organisations through this time and become an even more essential part of the strategic and resource management of organisations.
