Speed to Market: The Race for Digital Transformation
The In-house Lawyer’s Role in Business Innovation

Join us for the first webinar of our upcoming Digital Transformation information series.

Established companies and start-ups across sectors are inventing and reinventing products, customer experiences, and business models—and transforming the marketplace as a result. From autonomous vehicles to IoT devices to 3D printing, innovations are moving more quickly than the legislative, regulatory, and industry standards that govern them.

In-house counsel are being called upon to provide legal advice in uncharted territory at a time when speed is everything. With new innovation comes increased risk—from privacy and data security to product liability and safety. But navigating those risks can bring substantial rewards.

Law departments operating in the digital revolution are helping business leaders create innovative strategies that will bring new technologies to market rapidly. They are playing a dynamic role in helping to develop business architecture—far beyond legal advice—and they’re demonstrating how legal strategy can sharpen a company’s competitive edge and positively impact the bottom line.

Join us for a discussion of best practices in key areas, as well as a forecast of upcoming trends in the U.S. regulatory landscape. Also, sign up to receive our updates on our digital transformation information series, as we explore global trends and key developments throughout the coming months.
