Gearing up for the PLC General Counsel Leadership Series event
As mentioned in our post in July, we are delighted to sponsor the inaugural General Counsel event specifically aimed at SMEs being run by PLC. The day long conference has been developed for Legal Management in smaller and mid-sized companies and will include topics such as how to remain inclusive, efficient and effective whilst managing an internal team so that GCs can optimise the output from their staff.
The event has received a positive response from the market with over 70 GCs due to attend the event which will take place in London on Tuesday 25th November. It is recognition of the calibre of the conference that it has attracted Association of Corporate Counsel Europe (ACC Europe) as a media partner for this inaugural conference.
Halebury Co-Founders Janvi Patel and Denise Nurse along with Halebury lawyer Rachael Davidson will be speaking at the event and drawing upon their experience at Halebury and from their time in-house to give insights into how to work within a limited legal budget, deliver efficiencies to the business and select the right external legal provider.
