Risk, Legal Departments Team Up on Threats

Risk managers talk about their top legal challenges and how they work with their legal departments.

To successfully protect their organizations in an increasingly risky and litigious world, it’s imperative that risk managers and in-house counsel partner closely with each other. NU spoke with several members of our Risk Managers Advisory Board to hear about the most pressing challenges their legal and risk departments are working collectively to solve; and to get their advice on how risk managers can most effectively communicate with their attorney colleagues.
