Reduction and control of both risk and cost continue to be top of mind in the general counsel’s office as the economy emerges from recession. Issues around corporate governance, government investigations, and innovative alternative fee structures are taking center stage. How are leading general counsels addressing these issues and the growing prominence of legal’s place in the c-suite? These topics all will be featured at Argyle Executive Forum’s 2012 Chief Legal Officer Leadership Forum (Chicago).
