Lex Mundi, in conjunction with its member firms and senior corporate counsel, has published, “The Role of the General Counsel in Protecting Enterprise Reputation: Navigating the Company to its North Star.”
This report analyzes best-practices and perspectives shared among general counsel during Lex Mundi’s 2016 Summit in Amsterdam, where speakers and participants examined three critical aspects of protecting the reputation of the multinational enterprise:
- the scope of the general counsel’s role in building and protecting the enterprise’s reputation
- how general counsel carry out the role of protecting the enterprise’s reputation
- the roles general counsel are playing as part of overall crisis preparation
A key concept emerging from discussions among general counsel and member firm participants was that of helping the company navigate to its North Star, leading to three main ways in which general counsel endeavor to protect the enterprise reputation, namely by:
- anticipating and calling attention to potential risks;
- influencing and managing diverse stakeholders; and
- preparing for how crises will be managed.
