Claire Kennedy speaks on a panel on Dealing with Boardrooms: Navigating the Dynamics and Politics of this Complex Relationship at the Canadian Lawyer In-House Lawyers Virtual Summit.
The panel will look at how dealing with the boardrooms and owners can be a complicated and challenging duty for a GC, and the different approaches GCs can take to communicate and navigate their relationship. Topics include:
- What are the key trends driving change in the relationship with the board?
- Examine when, where and why outside counsel might need to be engaged.
- How has the heightened focus on corporate governance by stakeholders impacted the advisor role?
- GC as intermediary—balancing the relationship with the CEO/executive and the board.
