Law360 recently covered MoFo’s global research study exploring the changing role of GCs and their impact as business leaders. The study, part of the firm’s “THE GC {RE}DEFINED” thought leadership campaign, was featured in the Law360 article “Evolution Of GC Role May Come At A Cost, MoFo Study Finds.”

The global study was done in partnership with ALM’s Global Leaders in Law and explores how the role of the GC is evolving in the midst of significant change, and points to how GCs need to pivot if they want a seat at the C-Suite table.

Litigation Department Co-Chair Brad Wine was quoted in the article, saying "I think one of the things that stood out to me was how thinly spread [general counsel are] and how many different hats general counsel are being asked to wear. It was impressive to see how diverse the role of general counsel has become and how many different skill sets general counsel are expected to understand and become proficient in."
