DLA PIPER ALUMNI Location: United States

This webinar is the ninth of our 2022 WIN webinar programme, which is offered as part of our global WIN (What In-house lawyers Need) programme.

Whether you’re part of a business that is growing, re-structuring or re-inventing itself, understanding the inner workings of your organisation and engaging with all stakeholders across the business is fundamental for in-house lawyers. This webinar offers practical tips and guidance that an in-house lawyer needs to help drive growth, understand the related challenges, and take their role beyond legal expertise, including:

  • stakeholder management and engagement;
  • persuasion model focusing on proactive questioning; and
  • the role of an in-house lawyer and how that relates to strategic change.

Please note, these webinars are only available to in-house lawyers and due to the popularity of our programme, webinar spaces will be prioritised for registered WIN members. If you are not registered for WIN, you may be placed on a waiting list. To register for WIN, please click here.
