Facilitating commercial decision-making


Historically, in-house legal teams were viewed by many commercial colleagues as merely an admin or back office function. Thankfully, that view is now changing. Still, in many businesses, In-House Counsel are seen as ‘the department of No’, stifling growth, creativity and blocking progress. Overcoming these negative perceptions is crucial if legal are to become true business partners and get a seat at the table early on when commercial deals are being discussed.

In this session we hear from experienced in-house counsel who have successfully aligned their thinking and working practices with the executive perspective and commercial aspirations of the internal corporate clients they serve.

Discussion points include:

  • The fundamentals of business partnering and how to do it right
  • Understanding what makes a commercially attractive deal
  • Communicating risks to commercial colleagues
  • Developing a collaborative mindset to work effectively across multiple disciplines and internal functions
  • Understanding and adapting your approach based on company culture
  • Engaging in effective challenge and speaking truth to power
  • Learning the language and drivers of the C-Suite
