The Chief Legal Officer’s Role in Transition Back to the Workplace

As enterprises continue to weigh the decisions and risks related to workplace transition, CLOs play a crucial role in addressing everything from leading the legal team and functions remotely, to the heightened organizational data privacy and security risk or the tax and immigration concerns that have arisen from these employee transitions.

Special guests Lori Lorenzo, Research and Insights Director of Deloitte’s Chief Legal Officer Program at Deloitte Transactions and Business Analytics LLP, and David Garland, Chair of the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management Steering Committee at Epstein Becker Green, discuss the range of issues CLOs are tackling. 

You can also read more in a recent article, or learn about how Epstein Becker Green’s alliance with Deloitte Legal provides holistic solutions for CLOs and employers with global workforces.
