Presented by

Claudia Danser, leadership and career coach

About this talk

Finding the time to lead - and knowing how to do it well - can be difficult at the best of times. It can be challenging to figure out how to balance doing your own legal work with the responsibility of managing and motivating your teams and colleagues. During a crisis, when working lives and social interactions are disrupted, it can feel overwhelming and almost impossible to do effectively, remotely. Yet our personal experience and studies show that now, more than ever, is when we all want and need great leadership. It’s become essential. What can you do to improve how you show up as a leader for others while you’re in lockdown? This 45 minute session will give you immediate practical takeaways based on the latest leadership research. It will help you not only focus on what’s important during COVID-19 but also give you the tools to enable you, your colleagues and your business to come out better and stronger on the other side.

‘What keeps in-house counsel awake at night?’ is one way to summarise our editorial focus. We aim to track the strategies of in-house IP counsel within companies, big and small, by speaking directly to them about the day-to-day issues they face. Law firms need practical information that they can apply when advising their clients, and companies find value in benchmarking their strategies with those of their peers. This is why we have adopted this approach in our subscription-based service. Our content is not reactionary or news-focused, but informed and actionable. In this pursuit of in-house intelligence, we also publish several surveys each year that include exclusive data focusing on specific industry issues. These polls allow us to provide an accurate snapshot of how in-house counsel perceive and act on a given issue. Our other core objective is interviewing senior judges, whose insight is valuable for many IP stakeholders. We find that the judiciary are vital for giving counsel, private and in-house, highly useful information for when they are locked in litigation. We continue to speak regularly with IP offices too. Regardless of its specific intent, our coverage is global and encompasses (but is not limited to) the following areas: Copyright; Data; Designs; Patents; Trademarks; and Trade secrets
