Doing business internationally is daily business to most GCs. However, navigating the global business landscape is becoming more challenging and complicated due to geopolitics, health crises, regulatory expansion, globalisation, risk convergence, cost pressures, and corporate innovation, to name a few. At the General Counsel Fall Conference 2022 we will share knowledge on how to overcome these challenges and focus on your role as General Counsel. We will also present the results of the General Counsel NL Benchmark Survey 2022 during a GC Panel Discussion and weigh the results and facts in our conversations that day during the 12 GCN Roundtables that we have organised.

He worked across Europe, Asia and the U.S. in senior executive capacities with companies like Pearson, The Coca-Cola Company and Kimberly-Clark. He is originally from Norway but lived in a lot of places. His father was a diplomat, so he grew up moving around. Before Bjarne went to university, he was a professional actor and studied at a conservatory. He started his legal career at the law firms of Sullivan & Cromwell and White & Case.
Bjarne’s book ‘Building an Outstanding Legal Team: Battle-Tested Strategies from a General Counsel’ came out in 2017 and is considered as the manual for General Counsel to articulate a framework that helps in-house legal leaders to accelerate their performance.
