The risk and regulatory landscapes are interminably expanding, imposing new requirements and increased complexity for the operating business. Organisations are having to adapt to an ever-evolving global marketplace, balancing regulatory and social demands and an expanding trend for digitisation. These challenges are becoming ever more incorporated into business strategies and KPIs, and while organisations are optimising team synergies, legal departments are equally evolving from acting as separated ‘advisory units’ to acting as strategic partners to the business.
A new reality demands a different approach. Legal functions are increasingly altering their roles as legal specialists to operate as business aligned facilitators. The legal function must prioritise being proactive, rather than merely working reactively for problem solving. Hence, as the legal function plays an increasingly integral role in the success of many organisations, the legal function must constantly balance a legally robust insight while being commercially well-founded and business aligned, taking a wider view to ensure that the work of the legal team is aligned with the strategic objectives of the business.
The purpose of Legal Transformation is to add a new service level to the traditional, nationally anchored and highly specialised legal advisory platform that already exists in the Danish market. It is about providing business solutions to legal challenges and with these legal challenges being our base, we provide market re-defining services to grasp untapped potentials, exploring market white spots and paving a new path to meet customer demands and business opportunities within legal and tech.
