Bloomberg Law Leadership Forum

The New Era of Corporate & Client Engagement


The rules for corporate and legal engagement in politics and society have changed dramatically in the past few years. The Covid-19 pandemic and economic crisis, the global outcry over systemic racism, an epidemic of misinformation in a divided country, and widespread effects of climate change have accelerated these changes.

Organizations of all types, especially those that claim to be values-oriented, are expected to acknowledge and act on the issues facing the country. Ultimately driving corporations and law firms to consider how their actions and public statements impact their reputations – and brands.

Join us for the Bloomberg Law Leadership Forum, Heightened Expectations: The New Era of Corporate & Client Engagement, where we’ll examine:

  • How social change translates into policy and operational changes
  • How corporations and law firms are transforming their internal conduct
  • Impacts on relationships with business partners
  • Proactive compliance and active reputations risk management strategies
  • Corporate engagement’s impact on contractual relationships

Each day will be eligible for 1.7 CLE credit.

Who Should Participate?

Leaders across in-house legal teams and law firms who are setting compliance and legal goals and social responsibility initiatives – as well as leaders in charge of executing new internal policy guidelines.
