WIN Insights Report: The in-house lawyer role during COVID-19

WIN insights

Following a survey of our global WIN community, the first WIN Insights Report brings together the recent experiences and stories of over 230 in-house lawyers from around the world, providing a concise, authentic snapshot into the changing nature of their role during a global pandemic.

In recent months, the role of the in-house lawyer has been required to adjust to suit the evolving needs of their organisation with a number of considerations playing a key role within this shift. The WIN Insights Report explores these considerations in detail, allowing you to learn from the experiences of your peers across industries and countries.

The key themes explored within the report include:

  • how organisations have moved and adapted to remote working, including managing the mental health and wellbeing of staff;
  • how legal teams have helped their organisations respond to the pandemic;
  • the role of the in-house legal team in guiding their organisation through to the ‘new normal’ and what this has meant in terms of legal strategy and legal spend; and
  • what the future looks like for the in-house legal team in light of recent changes.

We hope you find the report insightful and welcome your feedback.

To celebrate the launch of the report, we will be hosting a virtual panel discussion on Thursday 5 November (9am - 10am GMT) with three senior in-house lawyers who have led their own legal teams during the pandemic. Our panel will share their own experiences taking a practical look at the changing nature of their role and discussing the key findings of the WIN Insights Report.
