From X to Next: what do the next generation of lawyers want? 

By Erica Wernmo, LegalWorks

We are in the midst of a societal shift with main drivers such as digitalization, globalization, environmental crisis and a generational transition, all inextricably linked of course. We also note from our yearly survey on general counsels, that one of their main struggles is finding and retaining the right people.

Being able to perceive and understand what really makes lawyers “tick” is crucial to attract talents and providing the right environment for them to stay on and keep flourishing in a complex and unpredictable context. At the same time, we are finding ourselves in a situation where a total of four different generations are acting together on the legal stage.

LegalWorks has conducted an indicative study of lawyers’ wants and needs across generations. Come and learn what they say that they look for in an employer, what values the most to them, but also if they really think that values matter in a corporate context (hint: they do).

The future of GDPR

By Axel Tandberg, PrivacyWorks

The future of GDPR

GDPR has given us an interesting year where the data protection agencies have started with their interpretation and the Regulation. It has resulted in huge fines for major companies, such as Google, Marriot and British Airways, but as well minor fines towards small companies that does not want to be abed the advice they get from an agency. Looking at the fines, combined with proposed legislation within the EU, where is the GDPR heading? As it looks now, it seems that the only focus is in ensuring consumers rights, and nothing to ensure the free flow of data that will enable businesses to continue to thrive.

Axel Tandberg, senior advisor and founding partner at PrivacyWorks, will point to what is trending when ut comesto data protection within Europe and when we might see the trends materialise.
