2017 Chief Legal Officer Leadership Forum

Washington, DC Jun 20, 2017

Overview

Argyle Executive Forum is bringing together leading senior legal executives for our annual Chief Legal Officer Forum in Washington D.C. Throughout a full day of thought leadership content and networking, we will focus on the most pressing issues that legal executives are facing in 2017, with an agenda geared specifically towards General Counsels, Chief Legal Officers, Chief Compliance Officers, as well as Deputy GCs, Assistant GCs, Corporate Secretaries, and VPs of Compliance, Legal, Ethics, and M&A in a leadership role.  Topics will include:

  • How economic, geopolitical, and regulatory changes are impacting the global business landscape in 2017, particularly with regards to regulation and compliance
  • Effectively identifying and communicating top areas of risk to the management team
  • Understanding how the GC’s role will continue to evolve with regards to global data privacy management and the modern security environment
  • Driving effectiveness and efficiency as a modern in-house lawyer
  • Predictions on the M&A landscape and how leading GCs are driving strategic alliances and divestitures
  • How to build and maintain an effective ethics program
  • Best practices in recruiting and leading a high performing legal team


Our keynote presentations, fireside chats, panel sessions, and networking breaks will enable candid discussions with your peers focused on these topics and more. Speakers at our 2016 Washington D.C. Forum included Leslie Thornton, SVP, GC & Corporate Secretary at WGL Holdings; Sam Eberts, CLO, Corporate Secretary & SVP of Corporate Affairs at Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings;

Brian Edge, Chief Compliance & Ethics Officer at Washington Gas; Brian Ellis, SVP & GC at Danaher Corporation; Brian Brooks, EVP, Corporate Secretary & GC at Federal National Mortgage Association; and more.

We look forward to bringing together another fantastic faculty in 2017, and to hosting you alongside our community of Fortune 500 legal leaders hailing from the nation’s capital and beyond!
