📢 Lawtrades Presents: Some Awesome Upcoming Events
We have a FULL events calendar for you - the perfect way to round out the year! Whether you are a GC who wants to become more of a leader, a DGC looking to make the next step or navigating the waters of parental leave…we’ve got you covered!
How In-House Legal Can Become Better Leaders
There’s not that much time left in the day to focus on leadership and team management. So how do you efficiently and effectively utilize your day?
We’re excited to share an interactive discussion led by Charlotte Smith and renowned legal leaders Jacqueline Lee (GC - Flynn Restaurant Group), John Pingel (GC - Unison) and Laura Jeffords Greenberg (Senior Director of Legal & Compliance - Worksome). They will share their top tips on time management, taking a global look at the business and creating a structured team management plan.
The Path to GC
The role of an in-house lawyer has changed considerably over the last few years. It’s not just about legal - it’s about becoming a valued business partner, thinking strategically and advising on all matters. But the path to GC isn’t as clear as the Partner Track.
Join Lisa M Mather (GC @ Mars Wrigley), Chris Livingston (GC & Corporate Secretary @ Bowery Farming), Ellen Hochberg (Head of Legal @ Gympass) and Nisha Ramachandran (GC @ Signifyd) to see how you can plan and progress your career to the position of General Counsel.
Managing Parental Leave for In-House Teams
Navigating parental leave within the legal team can be tough. There are many things to consider - from the logistical (how will the work get done?) to ensuring trust, confidence and reliable support across all business units.
Ashley Herd (Founder & CEO, Manager Method) will be talking to Meyling Ortiz (Managing Counsel, Toyota), Meredith Smith (GC, Stash) and Deanna Kwong (Director, Office of Operations, Legal & Administrative Affairs, Hewlett Packard Enterprise) on this important topic. We’ll be discussing how to prepare your team for people leaving on parental leave, maintaining consistency and the transition back to work.
