Lawyer Monthly - November 2021 Edition

Welcome to the November 2021 Edition of Lawyer Monthly! The end of the year is looming large – and what a year it has been. As we slowly wind up 2021, it is worthwhile to take stock of the lessons that we have learned over the course of the year. This month’s features reflect this, with topical discussions on mediation and arbitration, data privacy, cybersecurity risks and a host of other challenges facing the legal sector. Our cover interview this month is with Brian Dunagan, Chief Investigator and Managing Consultant at IFO Group. A veteran of occupational health and safety, Brian shares the insights he has gained over a storied career of investigating catastrophic incidents, many of which have particular relevance for corporate and outside counsel whose organisations may one day face a similar event. You can find our in-depth conversation with Brian on page 12. The November edition also features a special Intellectual Property spotlight. Speaking with a diverse group of legal specialists, Lawyer Monthly has compiled a selection of articles on hot topics in the IP sector – ranging from guidance on handling trade secrets to a look at the biggest PR disasters to have come out of IP litigation. Turn to page 50 to browse these fascinating stories. As ever, this month’s edition also includes a round-up of current events in the legal sphere, including an overview of M&A activity and lawyer moves. We hope you enjoy this edition!
