The Economist’s General Counsel conference goes virtual for the first time

In its 17th year, The Economist’s General Counsel conference goes virtual for the first time.

General Counsel Virtual Week will be taking place on November 2nd – 5th 2020. Under the theme “Uncertainty. Risk. Technology.” the event will explore what the corporate legal teams have learned from covid-19, the implications of this “new” normal and seek to solve the new problems that arise as the scenario continues to change.

Benefit from a one-time-only opportunity to access four days of content and networking with more than 500 general counsel and their direct reports.

Join the event and:

  • Hear from the most influential General Counsel from leading global organisations including 15+ FTSE100-listed companies
  • Gain insights from high-level panel debates: learn how covid-19 has changed the corporate agenda, how legal teams can be made more resilient, and how general counsel should prepare for the next crisis.
