The highly regulated environment of the financial services and insurance industries provides a variety of challenges and opportunities for the in-house litigator. Chief Litigation Officers within these particular industries must constantly keep up with a high volume of cases and ever-changing laws and regulations, while seeking to add greater value to the business. Fortunately, with the right strategy and sufficient support, these senior executives can have as powerful a positive impact on the business as any other senior executive at the company.
This survey was developed in connection with an invitation-only event hosted by Consero Group in May 2014 for the leaders of litigation departments of Fortune 1000 companies within the financial services and insurance industries. While the survey was limited to 44 participants, the answers provide valuable insight into the perspective and concerns of this group of senior corporate executives.
