Welcome to The Lawyer General Counsel Strategy Summit 2014

Last April The Lawyer gathered 100 of Europe’s leading lawyers working in business to Portugal’s stunning Penha Longa hotel to discuss the key issues facing general counsel in a time of unprecedented economic and political change. The event was a huge success, bringing together legal professionals from a broad range of industry sectors in an environment where ideas, experiences and strategies were shared between peers.

Over the last year, many of the challenges faced by general counsel and heads of legal have developed in new directions, but all remain business critical issues for the legal function.  Continuing political upheaval in the Middle East and global economic uncertainty, in spite of signs of recovery, make it essential to have a strategic take on the evolving global situation.

For the third year running, The Lawyer General Counsel Strategy Summit will return to Penha Longa and take place from 30th April - 2nd May 2014. The event will again provide senior lawyers working in business with a comprehensive overview of the key issues they face, making them more effective in their role.

With keynote sessions on the changing economic backdrop and regulatory changes to the global business environment as well as roundtables covering everything from managing risk to competition law, this year’s programme is a comprehensive resource for anyone leading the legal function in a large organisation.
