Next Generation In-House Summit

Unlocking business value from new approaches and emerging technologies, for legal teams in financial services

17 January, 2018. London

There is growing recognition that in-house counsel can benefit from more sophisticated methods and technologies, to improve efficiency and cut costs. However, choosing the most effective solutions for your firm, and strategising the right implementation plan, are difficult.

At Finance Edge’s Next Generation In-House Summit, the industry’s leading GCs will reveal the approaches they are successfully using to future-proof their departments in a constantly evolving landscape.

Key topics:

  • Re-model your in-house team, in response to surging legislative and business demands
  • Make the legal department a higher value proposition for the rest of the business
  • Assess new technology solutions, and unlock the full business value of any technology you implement
  • Build a productive dialogue between your legal, business and technology teams
  • Proactively identify future legal risk and manage business decisions accordingly
  • Be prepared for Brexit, and understand the expected impact on the role of in-house counsel

Specifically designed for:

The summit will bring together experts from leading banks, investment managers, hedge funds, private equity firms and insurance companies:
  • General Counsel
  • Legal Counsel
  • Heads of Legal
  • Chiefs of Staff
  • CTOs
  • Heads of Data Protection / Data Privacy
  • Heads of Innovation

Our attendees consistently tell us that they hear more useful and relevant content and make more valuable connections at ECN events than they do at other events. So, how do we ensure that your day out of the office exceeds your expectations?

Focused and free-flowing conversations on niche and highly relevant topics. Senior industry participants openly share their challenges, failures, successes and plans. These sessions are designed to present attendees with fresh ideas that they can apply to make meaningful improvements within their firms.

Interactive and informal brainstorming sessions. Chatham House Rules give attendees the freedom to speak outside of the box. Small groups encourage participation from all attendees; and feedback sessions stretch the pool of knowledge across the entire room. The roundtables routinely generate enlightening (and often unexpected) solutions to shared challenges.

Short, sharp and inspirational anecdotes about real-time industry challenges and opportunities, as well as visions for the future. The thought-piece talks give attendees direct access to the experience and knowledge of some of the greatest minds in the industry.
