As businesses across all sectors embrace new technologies and business models, they need expert guidance to avoid legal pitfalls and optimise impact. In our experience, digital transformation projects succeed best when:

  • the Board is fully engaged and understands the legal risks and opportunities
  • the legal team informs, supports and shapes strategy and tactics from an early stage
  • there is a comprehensive understanding of the specific legal and regulatory context and
    associated risks and opportunities.

Board presentation

Digital transformation can have a huge impact on business performance and is essential for all businesses looking to grow and stay ahead of the competition. Engaging with digital transformation can lead to long-term financial gains, as well as improving workforce productivity.

The associated legal and regulatory issues typically create both opportunity and risk, which can include personal liability for directors. So ensuring your Board understands the legal context and future regulatory direction within your sector is vital.

GC Workshop

94% of legal counsel told us, in a survey conducted at our November 2019 ‘In-House Lawyer Day’, that digital transformation is a strategic priority for their business or is currently on the Board agenda.

Given the potential scale of change through a transformation process, it is imperative that the legal team gets closer to the digital transformation project team to help inform strategy.

Our digital transformation and sector experts will work with your legal team to get you trained up to support digital transformation opportunities in your industry.

GC workshopFollowing an initial conversation, our specialists will provide a bespoke three-hour, one-to-one or group workshop covering:

  • the importance of legal analysis informing digital transformation strategy, including directors’ liabilities and the legal department as an enabler
  • an overview of the digital technologies relevant to your sector or project, and the key associated legal, regulatory, tax and workforce implications
  • the role and structure of the legal team, including in guiding the business and, where relevant, influencing government and regulators
  • other practical considerations, including third party involvement, tips for engaging with
    the project team and LegalTech as part of the mix
  • the next steps
