Case Study Breakouts (B)

Time: 4:00 pm - 12:00 am

Date: Day 1 Wednesday 13 February 2019


This series of hosted round table discussions (B1 – B10) will focus on how other corporate legal departments deal with the challenges you face.  These interactive and informal discussions follow Chatham House rules – giving you the freedom to speak your mind.  Small groups allow everyone to participate and each group feeds back, giving all attendees access to the knowledge pool.  These brainstorming sessions will give insight into your peers’ challenges and provide solutions to your own.  Each session indicates the size of the facilitator’s legal team so that you can choose the discussions most relevant to your business.

There will be two 35-minute sessions.
