Panel discussion also included in-house counsel from Conagra, PulteGroup and Mastercard and was moderated by Morae’s Chuki Obiyo
Houston, October 15, 2018 — Morae Global Corporation, the full-service, technology-enabled, integrated solution provider for the legal and compliance function, hosted the panel, “The Law Department as a Business Enabler,” during the 57th Annual Corporate Counsel Institute (CCI) at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in Chicago.
Including panelist Heidi Rudolph, Morae Global Managing Director, the discussion explored the corporate law department’s mission to “protect and enable,” with a focus on how to become a business enabler through the right people, process and systems. The session was moderated by Morae Global Director Chuki Obiyo.
“Legal operations’ baseline responsibility should be to let lawyers be lawyers while removing the administrative burdens,” says Rudolph. “Once the trains are running, legal ops can assist in more strategic legal business responsibilities.”
Obiyo and Rudolph were joined on the panel by:
- Megan Agnew, Senior Counsel M&A and Transactions at Conagra
- Todd Sheldon, Executive Vice President and General Counsel at PulteGroup
- Dennis Kennedy, Former Vice President and Senior Counsel at Mastercard
The Institute featured leading practitioners, academics and regulatory officials who provide in-house counsel with updates on legal developments and current issues impacting business.
The Corporate Counsel Institute is designed exclusively by a committee of general counsel from some of the nation’s leading corporations. It provides a unique forum to learn from leading regulators and practitioners in the field and for peers to network and discuss the latest issues important to today’s in-house counsel.
