Event Details

Who Should Attend:

This webcast/networking session is geared for legal professionals in Texas to discuss challenges from 2020, what you've learned and how you are creating your game plan for 2021.


Following a year of immense uncertainty, the corporate legal department solidified its place as a true strategic business partner by managing corporate risk through a multitude of unforeseen obstacles. From navigating compliance with remote employees to untangling disputes with a new – or different - layer of complexity, our corporate legal departments were the key to protecting the corporation in 2020.

As we move further into 2021, how can we continue to iterate on the changes made in 2020. What lessons did we learn and how did our colleagues manage similar challenges?

Register today and Join FTI Consulting and CCBJ for an interactive workshop with our Texas in-house peers to discuss the unique challenges faced by Texas corporate legal departments and what ongoing concerns are ahead for 2021. Discussion point include:
