Winning in the GC Role: Key Fundamentals for Success as General Counsel


Event Description

Being a GC is hard. As GC, you’ll likely have to address issues you’ve never addressed before – even if you’ve been practicing law for many years. You’re going to need to expand your expertise to find answers in ambiguous areas with which you’re barely familiar. You may also become responsible for managing outside counsel, setting department KPIs, and building your legal department from scratch. Who should be your first hire? It sounds intimidating, but this can be fun!


Whether you’re an experienced GC, new GC, or aspiring GC, join us on Thursday, March 9th, at 12pm ET / 9am PST, as Jessica Nguyen, Chief Legal Officer at Lexion, Jason Weintraub, Chief Legal Officer at Jacuzzi Group, and Noga Rosenthal, General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer at Ampersand, share practical advice from their first-hand experiences as in-house counsel to the general counsel positions they hold today, including:


  • A framework for your 90-day plan;
  • Key early priorities;
  • Specific advice on how to earn trust and build credibility with the Business; and
