Farella Partners Mary McCutcheon and Erica Villanueva will
be joined by Sachin Adarkar, General Counsel Prosper Market Place to discuss,
“General Counsel As Risk Manager:  For
This I Went to Law School?” at the 2nd Annual Institute for Advanced Corporate
Counsel (IACC 2.0). 

The panel will discuss the following:  As companies restructure or streamline their
operations, general counsel must manage an ever-broadening array of tasks.  One of the many functions migrating into
corporate law departments is risk management – assessing the company’s
insurance requirements and purchasing adequate insurance coverage.  While these tasks may seem like an odd fit
within the corporate law function, good risk management is often inextricably
intertwined with tasks that are clearly within the province of the legal
department.  Understanding that an
effective risk management strategy will always depend on strong external
support from insurance brokers and insurance coverage counsel, general counsel
must learn to delegate effectively various tasks to the correct internal
resource or external service provider. 
In this presentation, we will provide suggested guidelines and best
practices for in-house counsel handling the risk management function.
