Over the past ten years enterprise risk management (ERM), a means for evaluating corporate risks and risk-taking, has emerged and is now spreading its roots into legislation, regulations, and corporate boardrooms across America.
In the analytical world of ERM, intellectual property becomes a form of “reputational risk,” chief executive officers and general counsel become potential “risk silos,” and the chief risk officer occupies a new and potentially powerful executive position. Many lawyers are now finding themselves in unfamiliar territory when thinking about and describing corporate governance issues to their clients and colleagues. Is the focus shifting to what is legally wise rather than the narrow compliance of what is legal? The complexity of corporate risks and the methods of ERM are rapidly evolving; the range of risks is broadening, and consequences are more becoming ever more severe.
Join leading attorneys, academics, and industry experts as they discuss the fundamental concepts and legal applications of enterprise risk management. Topics will include:
- Basic enterprise risk management concepts
- ERM and corporate affairs and governance issues
- Applying ERM principles in evaluating law firm management risks
- ERM and litigation avoidance counseling
