General counsel of leading companies in Europe face a number of common challenges: increasingly severe yet inconsistent regulations about corporate governance, anxiety over risk management, rules on legal privilege and national discrepancies among those rules, increasing litigation risks, antitrust developments, and anticipation and management of antitrust problems.
Led by its members’ needs, the Council addresses these challenges as well as the general issues confronted by GCs in managing law departments: benchmarking, recruitment, and career development of lawyers from diverse backgrounds in different regions.
