Stephen Kay, Hogan Lovells
Steve will discuss the challenges associated with transitioning from the role of an outside advisor to being a member of an in-house legal team, especially in the role of GC. He will share insights developed through his experience, especially the invaluable lessons that he learned after being “parachuted” into a troubled public company as part of a turn-around team. During this interactive session, he will review a plan that will help in-house counsel tackle the challenges that they must embrace to achieve success. This discussion will interest anyone that has recently gone in-house, been promoted to a new level of responsibility, or moved to a new company in a senior in-house role, and will provide tangible examples of foreseeable and unforeseen issues that every in-house counsel should contemplate.
