Risk has become an essential part of corporate decision making in industries well beyond the financial sector. With the increasing need for corporate transparency, organisations require risk officers with the technical and management talent to foster a new corporate culture. For Compliance Officers, the increasing complexity faced by organisations presents a challenge that requires not only acute knowledge of numerous domestic and supranational regulatory systems but also the ability to forge meaningful connections with regulators.
Extensive legal expertise, for now, is merely a starting point for legal executives working both in-house and at major law firms. Internal legal teams face a host of new risks thanks to changing business models, a global marketplace, more aggressive shareholder activism, and rising concern over cybersecurity and data privacy. Law firms face a different set of pressures, as firm economics are challenged by new legal service providers. They are also regularly confronted by client expectations, forcing them to redefine the value they add, their structures, and fee arrangements.
