Program Description

Heads of Legal Operations (HLO) from Facebook, Dolby Laboratories, and Stripe discuss the challenges, and skills required, to build and manage a successful legal operations team.

The discussion begins with the skills required for succeeding in legal ops and building and managing an effective legal operations team, including the critical importance of being fluent in and experienced with change management. The panelists then share various lessons learned from their own experiences in implementing a systemic change in the operations of a legal department, along with how to identify, analyze, and work with the pertinent stakeholders. The discussion then dives into the importance of data for operating a legal department and how best to evaluate and use available technology. The discussion also contains invaluable insights into how an HLO can build effective relationships with the general counsel and those within finance and IT.
