The Legal Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable

An exclusive online discussion for senior partners responsible for corporate and commercial law across North America

Hosted by Kira Systems, The Legal Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable has been set up to offer an intimate online forum for partners and leaders responsible for corporate and commercial law of selected legal firms across North America.

Our discussions are very much inclusive and involve the wealth of experience from the senior peers.

Building Resilience in times of Crisis

The COVID-19 pandemic has spiralled the economy into a state of stagnation with no clear end-date in sight. Many C-level executives are anticipating a recession and are quietly gearing up for it. Thus the question is not whether to prepare, but how to do so. 

Legal professionals are needed now more than ever to advise leading institutions and corporations and drive the economy out of recession and into its next phase of economic growth. In order to do so, they follow the rules of resilience, offering professional services in ways that build endurance and position partners to be successful once the economy turns. 

  • How can legal professionals help their clients restructure, divest and spin off their non-performing assets? 
  • How are legal professionals embracing AI technologies to enhance productivity and revenue capture during these challenging times?
  • How can clients accelerate due diligence in their M&A work to take advantage of low valuations in the market?
