Insights from Ben W. Heineman, Jr. Former General Counsel of General Electric
RESCHEDULED FROM JANUARY: Over the past 25 years, there has been a revolution in the legal profession. Inside lawyers have risen in quality, responsibility, power and status, and become core members of top corporate management, equaling in importance the Chief Financial Officer and the finance function.
Ben W. Heineman, Jr., former General Counsel of General Electric, and now Senior Fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, will analyze how the rise of in-house counsel has transformed law and business with enhanced roles both inside the corporation, as partner to the CEO and guardian of the corporation, and outside the corporation in relations with law firms, corporate partners and public policy-makers. He will discuss the culture of integrity: How the first question inside lawyers must ask is: “Is it legal”, but the last question they must ask is, “Is it right,” in order to advance the fundamental goal of global capitalism: high performance with high integrity.
Attendees will receive a copy of Mr. Heineman’s new book, The Inside Counsel Revolution: Resolving the Partner-Guardian Tension.
