Navigating the corporate law landscape requires more than just expertise—it demands staying updated and connected. 

And when it comes to General Counsels (GCs) and in-house legal professionals, being ahead of the curve is not just an advantage, but a necessity. But how can you achieve that? By building connections through events.

You're not just a legal advisor but a strategic partner in your organization's success. The knowledge you gain and the connections you make at the events can pay dividends for years to come. 

“Legal should be pushing businesses forward, not just receiving tasks. So, if a legal team doesn't equally view themselves as part of the business, actively making business decisions along with the marketing, product, and finance teams, then the symbiotic relationship between legal and business is lost. And I question the value of legal over the long term of a company unless I can propel it differently than it's operating today.”

~ Megan Niedermeyer, CLO at
