    The Supreme Court in United States v. Windsor found unconstitutional the definition in DOMA that only persons of the opposite sex can be married for the purpose of federal law, and courts and administrative agencies recently have approved claims by transgender individuals. Issues ranging from extending benefits to same-sex partners to confusion about what sports a transgender individual can play (and which bathrooms and dressing rooms can be used), provoke impulse reactions. In-house attorneys need to address these issues. Unfamiliarity with the law can expose a business to both legal liability and terrible press.

    Because of their disposition, background and training, lawyers are often most comfortable expressing themselves through the spoken or written word. The reports that legal departments give to their boards of directors (BOD) are often in the form of narratives of major events (litigation, claims, etc.) that are considered sufficient material for the board’s review. However, BODs continue to increase their expectations of the quality and depth of information they receive from all members of the senior management team. Legal departments can use readily available data and software to create statistics-driven analyses to enhance their understanding of trends in their areas of responsibility, and increase the value of their reports. Come to this session to learn how lawyers without formal business administration training can use common software tools to create analytics (that do not require extensive statistical or modeling expertise or additional expense), and convey this information to their boards.

    Many companies are starting to form their own venture capital groups to explore different avenues to generate return on investment (ROI) and partner with emerging companies less expensively than through organic growth. An experienced panel of in-house practitioners and external counsel will provide a thorough understanding of current market practice, terms and conditions and applicable securities and ethical issues. You will learn the essentials of corporate venture capital, from examining the anatomy of a venture capital deal, dissecting term sheets and their negotiation, to exploring key issues in financing rounds, exit strategies and securities law compliance. You will also learn about the latest financing trends, regional differences in deal practice and ethical issues that arise when your employees act as directors of start-ups and venture-backed companies.
