Risk is now at the center of every conversation in the modern legal department. Over four consecutive years of study in the annual General Counsel Report, in-house counsel have expressed how they've been required to evolve and reinvent their roles.

Discussion of these changes in the general counsel's role has been a cornerstone throughout every edition of The General Counsel Report.
In a three-part series, The General Counsel Report 2023 will reveal in-depth insights across hot-button issues. Part 1: Demand & Risk Turn up the Heat on In-House Counsel is available now for download.
Part one of the report includes:
