Integrating and making in-house legal departments robust and self-reliant.

GC’s are under enormous pressure, not just to resolve legal issues but to deliver business solutions, play a more strategic role in the leadership team, modernize their legal departments, implement latest technologies, redefine processes, manage crises, risk, compliance and disputes across all functions and departments and handle multiple legal service providers with limited resources.

WLA In-house is the most intelligent and effective solution for in-house counsels that need additional outside counsel to address the regional and cross-border issues.

WLA In-house brings together former GCs and legal counsel across the globe, along with legal technology and other professionals, to form a global strategic consultancy providing integrated, multi-disciplinary advisory service, market insights, and experienced perspectives to in-house counsel of companies around the world.

WLA In-House provides a comprehensive strategy to help law departments take advantage of the WLA Global ecosystem, modern processes, technology and counsel that help them work more closely with their senior management and Board of Directors.

Our members provide top legal and other professional advice without the big firm price tag that can so often throw a company’s legal spend out of budget.

With various initiatives like ICDT, MCN and WLA specialist groups, we help address the challenges confronting GC’s of corporations around the world.
We drive value, efficiency, and effectiveness across your legal functions and offer our clients expertise across a wide array of industries, specialties, jurisdictions, languages, and cultures.
Whether there is a shortfall in expertise due to short-term leave or a recent departure, or a key project requires an experienced extra set of hands.

Risk & compliance management

We know how to present on risk issues to Boards and understand the challenges of rolling out global compliance programs and the difficulties that can come when you are asked to ‘clear’ actions – whether it is a matter involving reputation, product liability, regulatory changes or the ever-evolving challenges around cyber-security, we can guide you.

Crisis management

Crises may manifest in a variety of ways and from a variety of sources—but they always require swift and decisive action on the part of the General Counsel. In the wake of a crisis – when even the Board may have its own counsel – count on us to help steer you through the storm.
