#CraftyLexis Masterclass Workshop

Good vs exceptional. What makes a 5-star legal department?

Wednesday 26th June 2019, 5:30pm – 8pm

Barclays Eagle Lab, Notting Hill, London


Today’s business challenges are dynamic and wide-ranging.

Greater geopolitical uncertainty; a more interconnected, cross jurisdictional world; more high-profile corporate failures; increasingly complex and rapidly changing regulation; ethical and regulatory breaches carrying weightier consequences; and heightened business speed all contribute to the expanding requirements placed on in-house counsel.

In parallel, your role has never been more central, prestigious, powerful, more visible or under more scrutiny than it is today. The perfect storm for you to prove your value.

So how can you fully harness this opportunity to stand out as exceptional?

Introducing the first #CraftyLexis Masterclass Workshop

While the in-house legal community continues to grow in strength and numbers and examples of in-house counsel with increasing influence in their organisations are more prolific, often the impact of the legal department can still be muted. What’s more, while there is plenty talk of “demonstrating value” – few employing organisations or in-house counsel themselves can clearly articulate their value beyond cost reduction.

At this unique event, we will explore in-depth, three ways legal departments can practically and tangibly show value through facilitated interactive breakout sessions examining:

· The role of data and metrics beyond demonstrating cost reduction

· How a robust legal strategy can influence how the business achieves its outcomes

· Navigating your organisation through the new-age of data privacy and cybersecurity

We recognise that these options are not the only alternatives beyond cost reduction in highlighting the impact of the legal function on positive business outcomes.

The topics have been selected based on speaking extensively to the in-house community and in consultation with the LexisNexis In-house Strategic Advisory Board.

The objective is to keep discussion focused and outcomes pragmatic.

Why attend?

Crafty Counsel and LexisNexis have come together to create #CraftyLexis Masterclass Workshops as we share a common ethos – to support you as the in-house community to be exceptional.

Our vision is to provide a forum where senior counsel can share experiences, ideas and learn from each other and subject matter experts.

Our workshops are designed to challenge, educate and inspire. But most importantly, provide practical takeaways that you can implement which deliver a positive impact.

If you’re looking to learn and exchange ideas with like-minded peers in a hands-on, engaging environment – this event is not to be missed!

Join our inaugural Masterclass Workshop

Please note numbers to our #CraftyLexis Masterclass Workshops are limited. This is to ensure all participants have the chance to fully participate in the interactive, tailored breakouts and to allow for meaningful feedback and discussion on learnings and shared experiences. Chatham House applies. 

Crafty Counsel will be producing special video content at the workshop, capturing key takeaways and presentations. Please note that the event will be filmed, and you should inform Crafty Counsel if you'd rather not appear in the background of any of the footage from the event."
