Course overview

Legal risk is just part of the framework of risk and reward which business people have to manage. Once an organisation establishes a legal or risk department, there can be a tendency for business people to abdicate responsibility and the in-house lawyer effectively confiscates the management of legal risk. Poor management of legal risk can impair the prosperity and growth of a business by an accumulation of ineptitude or the drama of a showstopper.

It is undeniable that an organisation will be more agile in today’s demanding environment if it is:

  • Equipped with a good understanding of the legal implications of actions (or inactions) and the commitments entered into
  • Involving lawyers in the right things at the right time

In today’s uncertain world with political upheaval having an impact on regulatory regimes and contractual commitments, legal risk can be exacerbated by making assumptions that prove to be flawed. Brexit is just one example of this. Whilst in-house lawyers cannot reliably predict what the outcomes might be, we can assist our organisations to manage the uncertainty.

This interactive two-day seminar has been designed for in-house lawyers and business people who need to work together to ensure that the relevant legal risks can be well managed with reliable, but not cumbersome, processes, as well as awareness and compliance programmes.

Who should attend?

  • In-house lawyers
  • Legal affairs directors and managers
  • Senior corporate counsel and advisers
  • Risk and compliance officers
  • Commercial and contracts managers and directors
  • Business development executives
  • Business executives who need a greater understanding of legal risk


A key feature of this seminar is the practical workshop on managing the multiple strands of risk – regulatory, contractual and third party – involved in three testing scenarios.

Reviews of IPI's Effectively Managing Legal Risk and Preserving Reputation training course

The course content was brief, direct and engaging which is how I prefer my learning interventions. The speakers were obviously knowledgeable with a wealth of experience in their respective fields. For me, the workshops were very engaging and the interactions enabled participants to share ideas and compare practices within their respective industries and jurisdictions. I will definitely recommend the course to colleagues, lawyers and non-lawyers inclusive.
