Being a world-class general counsel requires more than just legal expertise, it demands a real appreciation of the internal and external business dynamics that surround and influence you.

We live in a world where the law protects confidentiality and privacy yet society demands increased transparency from businesses, particularly around the environmental and social impact of their actions. How, then, can lawyers guide their business to become a force for good?

How do you balance your day-to-day concerns around efficiency, regulation and compliance with proactively developing and building a culture that will support the sustainable growth of the legal function and the business?

The 2020 edition of the General Counsel Strategy Summit will focus on building a purposeful future and finding out what that looks like for your organisation.

The Summit offers a selection of 30+ sessions ranging from quick-fire TED-style talks to focused streams, roundtables, panel discussions and interviews.


Start the day by learning about the trends affecting today’s socio-political climate, what the future holds for the legal industry, how your peers are reacting to these changes and how to go about defining your strategy in a tech driven future.


The roundtables are a great opportunity to network and share ideas with like-minded industry peers in a less formal environment. Take advantage of these interactive discussions to get answers to your questions, to discuss practical solutions to your current challenges and to benchmark with peers.


Make the most out of the networking functions the event has to offer by making new contacts or reconnecting with existing ones. Take advantage of the time provided by exchanging thoughts and impressions on the event’s discussions and finding out what your peers think of these issues.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for the invite, it was an excellent summit, the experience invaluable and the people I met great!

Just wanted to thank you both for organising a wonderful event in Alicante. You and your teams did an excellent job, making it a real pleasure to attend from both the perspective as a speaker as well as an attendee. I really appreciate all the hard work behind the scenes to make it such a successful conference.

I wanted to thank you both for the event last week. It was my first and I thought it was very well organised and great to meet lots of other GCs. The sessions and roundtables were also very productive and all in such a great setting.

Just to say thanks again for an excellent Summit – the content and people gelled together so well and it was also just a lot of fun!

A big thank you to you and the whole team who put on an excellent event these past few days. As ever the content was top draw and stimulated a lot of discussion and debate, and the networking opportunity was excellent.

I must say, I was overwhelmed. It was really great. Thank you very much again.
