A different landscape in which most companies are competing has shifted the role of corporate counsels and expanded the portfolio of concerns that are now filtered through the domain of legal departments.
With a next generation of employees moving in, human capital issues are becoming more dynamic. Meanwhile, a globalized supply chain has redefined what constitutes risk from concerns over disruptions to business continuity or enhanced sourcing standards under the watch of regulatory scrutiny.
The scope and nature of business issues and other matters that must now filter through the most minimal review of internal legal counsel and their teams has ballooned. Corporate counsels are under considerable pressure concerning budgets and outcomes.
As a result, corporate counsels and an organization’s broader leadership are increasingly seeking new ways of relating to their outsourced trusted advisors. They require interactions within a circle of influence and decision-making where the trusted legal advisor contributes specialized expertise as part of a greater understanding of the client’s operational and strategic business imperatives.
