We're proud to sponsor Retail Week's General Counsel Summit as they bring together retail's legal leaders to explore and share the most up-to-date thinking on enhancing your strategies and adapting to a new business outlook.  

We're delighted to be joining the following sessions:

Panel: Shaping a brighter future of work 

15:50 - 16:25

Employee expectations have shifted dramatically in recent years. With staff having proven their ability to work remotely throughout the pandemic, more flexible working patterns are now justifiably being demanded as the balance shifts to a stronger work-life balance, and an increased emphasis on wellbeing has had implications on the recruitment and retention of staff in the sector. Employment partner Liz Cotton is featured on the panel and will be discussing the role of the GC in shaping what the future of work will look like, including:

  • Understanding employee expectations for new ways of working

  • Reimagining return to work - how to innovate hybrid working

  • Retaining talent access legal functions in the age of The Great Resignation

  • Prioritising workplace wellbeing - a mindset shift for legal?

Panel speakers: Liz Cotton - Employment Partner, Nick Boyd - Director of Legal and Company Secretary, Screwfix; James Knowles - Head of Content Innovation, Retail Week; Sarah Woodhouse - General Counsel, Unilever.

Roundtable: Leveraging tech to do more with less 

13:50 - 14:50 

Uptake of digital-based solutions is growing among legal teams, with an ever-growing wealth of tools to choose from. So how can retailers navigate the world of legal tech and make investments that will actually help? This discussion looks at how to choose the right tech to support GCs working against increased regulation with limited resources.

Hosted by: Dan Read, Partner and Clara Howard, Senior Business Development Manager.
