General Counsel in the Age of Disruption: Agility and Compliance (Not Mutually Exclusive)

Date: September 2017
From tougher privacy laws to stringent climate controls, the majority of manufacturing executives surveyed (94%) see an ever-increasing volume of regulations and greater significance of the impact of the regulatory environment on their organizations. Among those surveyed, 53% rank the compliance and regulatory environment as the trend most relevant to their organization from a legal point of view.

It is not enough to simply meet these stringent regulations. General counsel must be prepared to adapt to the evolving legal environment, ensuring strict compliance without sacrificing an organization’s ability to quickly respond to market fluctuations.

For the benefit of its manufacturing clients, K&L Gates partnered with Forbes Insights to create one of the most in-depth studies conducted thus far on the pressures and challenges facing general counsel operating within the manufacturing sector. Based upon research collected from a detailed survey of 200 general counsel and senior executives across Europe, the report covers a myriad of issues, including regulation and emerging technologies, forces of disruption and risk, and future outlooks on the sector.
