Corporate counsel must be more than simply attuned with company systems, but be experts in them. They can help enable systems across organizations and ensure these systems are integrated, updated, and refined. They’re well positioned to mobilize these business processes because they serve in a variety of functions touching many groups. Since systems help establish a degree of uniformity and more potential certainty in outcomes/management of risk, they also have great incentive to do so to be successful in their roles. Technology, sometimes seen as a foe, can also be a major ally in gathering and connecting data, which equates to more control — and restful nights for corporate counsel.
