The Legal Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable

An exclusive online discussion for senior partners responsible for corporate and commercial law in selected legal firms in the UK

Hosted by Kira Systems, The Legal Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable was set up to offer an intimate online forum for partners and leaders responsible for corporate and commercial law of selected legal firms in the UK.

Our discussions are very much inclusive and involve the wealth of experience from the senior peers.

Building Resilience in times of Crisis

The COVID-19 pandemic has spiralled the economy into a state of stagnation with no clear end-date in sight. Many C-level executives are anticipating a recession and are quietly gearing up for it. Thus the question is not whether to prepare, but how to do so.

Legal professionals are needed now more than ever to advise leading institutions and corporations and drive the economy out of recession and into its next phase of economic growth. In order to do so, they need to understand the Rules of Resilience, advising clients in ways that build endurance and position them to be successful when the economy turns.

Key points for discussion:

  • How can legal professionals help their clients preserve cash by exiting non-essential contracts, restructuring and divesting their non-performing assets?
  • How do legal professionals embrace AI technologies to enhance firm productivity and capture revenue during these challenging times?
  • How can clients accelerate due diligence in their M&A work to take advantage of low valuations in the market?
