Chief Legal Officer

Increased transparency, the arrival of the GDPR, the importance of compliance and faster interaction make companies increasingly vulnerable. As a result, the risk of technicalities, wrong legal structures and unclear relationships in companies remaining unnoticed for a long time has become small. Active and involved shareholders, private equity as well as wealthy competition keep management alert. With the Chief Legal Officer as the main player.


In recent years, the role of Chief Legal Officer in industry has rapidly developed into a position with a proactive character. Because it is the task of this Chief Legal Officer to explain the risks, possibilities and impossibilities of various scenarios and strategies. Within existing restrictions, the Chief Legal Officer indicates what the options are and how objectives can be achieved, instead of stating later where and when things went wrong.
