ACC National Capital Region Corporate Governance Conference

ACC National Capital Region Corporate Governance Conference

Speaking Engagement

A well-organized board is important for any company. But with increased shareholder activism, the threat of cyber incidents, transitioning corporate leaders and more, it is more important than ever that board members develop the skills and strategic insight needed to be effective in today's world. It is increasingly important for in-house counsel to be well versed in addressing the critical issues facing boards today. This conference is designed to prepare in-house counsel to support their boards effectively in dealing with unpredictable and difficult situations facing many companies. 

WilmerHale Partner Stephanie Evans will serve as moderator during the session “The GC's Role of Working with the Board on Corporate Strategy,” which will explore how effective legal departments can be valuable contributors to the development and implementation of the company's business strategy and objectives. The panel of seasoned general counsel will focus on the role in-house counsel can play in advising the board and executive team on corporate strategy, including how the legal team can impact business outcomes and support the objectives of other corporate functions such as sales, marketing, corporate development, finance and HR.
