The Corporate Counsels’ Virtual Roundtable

An exclusive online discussion for senior counsel members in corporate firms across the United States

Hosted by Kira Systems, The Corporate Counsels’ Virtual Roundtable offered an intimate online forum for senior counsel members in corporate firms across the United States.

Our discussions are designed to be very inclusive and interactive, ensuring to leverage the wealth of experience from your senior peers.

Is your legal department equipped to tackle the new trends in M&A?

Given uncertain organic growth prospects, relatively inexpensive capital, and more competition, corporate strategists increasingly see M&A as the right tool for entering adjacent markets. But as organizations pursue these strategies, is the legal department well-positioned to play an effective role in both deal governance and enablement?

As deals become more complex and receive more scrutiny from investors, governments, and consumers, the ability to execute frequent transactions offers companies a strategic competitive advantage. As a result, legal departments must make important shifts to effectively support opportunistic M&A.

  • How can a legal department be empowered to operate more efficiently in acquisitions or divestitures?
  • How has the relationship between legal departments and outside counsel changed in the past year?
  • How can AI technology help enhance a legal department’s productivity and reduce costs during this time?
