Outcomes focused regulation

The ramifications of the worst global recession seen for decades will inevitably change the way all businesses operate and there will be increased pressure on the in-house legal teams to demonstrate their value.  This coupled with the exceptional levels of new and demanding legislative regulation and fast developments in the way law changes, will require the in-house legal team to keep abreast of the impact of new legal risks.

An increasing problem is that the focus of regulation is changing from the implications of the new Bribery Act to outcomes focussed FSA regulation.  For the in-house lawyer this means shifting their focus from providing guidance on a set of policies and rules, to advising on designing and implementing the policies and their associated risks and so becoming more outcomes focussed rather than purely process.

In addition to this, improved and targeted risk management processes will be required due to the expected escalating burden of changes that will be seen within the legal and regulatory landscapes. Therefore, the strategic prominence of outcomes focussed regulation on in-house counsel will be far reaching and Eversheds Consulting can help you achieve your business aims and grow the profile of in-house counsel to their key stakeholders.
