CLARIFYING COMPLEX ISSUES
WittKieffer identifies and develops general counsel who serve diverse constituencies within and outside their organizations.
In heavily regulated industries, general counsel and legal executives serve as trusted, irreplaceable advisors to their CEOs and boards.
Experts predict increasing roles and responsibilities for general counsel and other senior legal executives in the coming years. These leaders are critical in assessing business risks, creating new employment models (e.g., for physician employment in healthcare), shaping public policy, and overseeing government and legislative relations. General counsel, deputy general counsel, and chief legal officers serve as an organization’s legal representation to external parties, represent the organization’s interests to the CEO, board, and other members of the executive team, and manage and mentor high-performing legal teams. In recruiting and supporting the growth of these leaders, WittKieffer draws exceptional talent from healthcare, higher education, Fortune 500 companies, not-for-profit organizations, and the nation’s leading law and consulting firms.
