The Massachusetts Bar Association will present its 16th Annual In-House Counsel Conference on Thursday, Jan. 31, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Bentley University, Waltham. This year, the theme of this popular program is “Managing Risk in a Changing World.”
Today, information and misinformation circulate with increasing volume and speed, impacting the reputations of organizations and their managers. Public and private companies are exposed to increased scrutiny and accountability, and there is less tolerance for certain business and individual misconduct. Ensuring transparency and promoting a culture of compliance are key components to the management of risk. In-house counsel must anticipate and manage new risks in these changing times.
We are pleased that the keynote address will be delivered by Seth Stratton, vice president and general counsel of MGM Springfield. The conference will feature panels and other presentations regarding litigation cost containment and management, employment law developments, and other topics of current interest to in-house counsel.
This year’s conference is co-sponsored by the New England Corporate Counsel Association Inc.
