Join us in London on 15 May for a free seminar on how to communicate legal advice and risk to non-lawyers.

The way in which you communicate with colleagues and internal clients is so important - even more so for in-house lawyers because the majority of your colleagues, line managers and internal clients may not be legally trained.

Communicating advice and risk effectively, building trust and good working relationships, and aligning business objectives to those of you and your team is key to the strategic positioning of in-house counsel.

How do you as an in-house counsel position yourself and your legal team as trusted partners?

How do you have difficult conversations with business colleagues without becoming known as a ‘blocker’?

How can you add value by adapting and knowing how best to communicate with the business?

This seminar will offer:

  • practical examples and guidance to help strategically align in-house lawyers with their business
  • examples and advice on having difficult conversations
  • tips on how focusing on soft skills can help in communication
  • advice on developing and widening your nertworks for support

This event is free of charge but must be booked in advance.
