Legal Week Corporate Counsel Forum 2015:
From baseline to brilliance

NEWS: Ed Smith, general counsel of Telefonica UK confirmed as conference chairman

24-25 September 2015
Four Seasons Hotel
Hampshire, UK

The annual meeting place for the UK's leading general counsel

In-house legal teams have come a long way since the inception of the Legal Week Corporate Counsel Forum almost 15 years ago. The teams carry a lot more buying power at the corporate table, increasingly work similar if not more hours than their private practice counterparts and have a much larger legal skillset. All of this equates to increased efficiency and a more structured approach to working with external legal advisors.

Offering great legal advice is now expected as a baseline, so how do you move closer to the new goal of brilliance and what does brilliance look like in the modern in-house legal environment? This year's Legal Week Corporate Counsel Forum will drill deep into the psyche of general counsel and their team structures. It will interrogate the various touch points, both internally and externally, which impact your role as legal department leaders.

We have designed the programme to be practical and interactive. Everything you hear will be supported by frontline evidence and case studies to ensure maximum value to the delegation. The seniority of the audience requires this forum to be an ideas exchange on a peer-to-peer basis, so prepare to immerse yourself in the debate and get involved with the many interactive sessions on offer.



At Legal Week Corporate Counsel Forum 2015 you will meet legal leaders from Barclays, Boston Consulting Group, BMW Group UK, Brewin Dolphin, Broadridge, BT, BTG, Cancer Research UK, Capgemini UK, City & Guilds, Co-operative Group, De La Rue, Dell, EE, Genworth Financial, Hammerson, HarperCollins Publishers, Hitachi Data Systems, HSBC, IHG, Imperial College London, ITV Commercial and Online, JLT Group, JTI UK, KPMG, Leah Cooper Consulting, Legal & General, Lloyds Banking Group, Lockton Companies, Microsoft, Mitie, National Grid, PGI - Protection Group International, Phoenix Group, Powa Technologies, Rolls-Royce, Royal Mail, Satellite Information Services, Serco, Standard Chartered Bank, Tate & Lyle, TelecityGroup, Tesco, The AES Corporation, Unisys, Unite Group, Vannin Capital, Viacom International Media Networks, and Vodafone.

I look forward to welcoming you in September to what is certain to be an exciting and informative event.

I have attended several Corporate Counsel events and I have always found them to be well planned, organized and of great value. The plenary sessions are topical, educational and practical. The specific subject workshops provide an opportunity to share practical experience in a focus group setting. Finally, the entire event provides an excellent opportunity to network with general counsel in the region. I highly recommend attending these events
