If you are in-house counsel, what exactly is your role? Do you consider yourself a lawyer first and foremost, or a business executive? In an era of widespread organizational belt-tightening, how do you do more with less? What do you want your legal department to look like five years from now? How should you reorganize your staffing and technology to meet today’s challenges? What does it mean to operate in a global economy? These were among the thought-provoking questions that general counsel and other senior in-house counsel debated at a recent Washington, D.C., event to mark the culmination of the 2011 Generals of the Revolution™ series, presented by Datacert, Inc., in collaboration with InsideCounsel and The General Counsel Forum. Generals of the Revolution is an exclusive network of in-house counsel focused on identifying actionable plans to confront current industry challenges and develop strategies to mitigate those likely to surface in the future.
