Addressing Legal Operations Pain Points: CoLab™ 

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MCCARTHY TETRAULT & CANADIAN CORPORATE COUNSEL ASSOCIATION (CCCA)

MARCH 28, 2019  MONTREAL, 2:00PM – 5:00PM


As in-house counsel, you face tightening budgets while dealing with increasing business complexity.

To succeed, you need to identify and address “pain points” – those issues and challenges that keep you up at night. These pain points might include risk and knowledge management, workload balancing, and adding strategic value to the organization.

CCCA, through chapters in Canada, and McCarthy T├ętrault are pleased to offer you our CoLab  program to help resolve your pain points. Following a successful pilot of this program in partnership with Women General Counsel Canada, CoLabs is expanding across Canada.


The CoLab program includes:

  • A survey to identify common pain points that GCs are seeking to manage.
  • A half-day CoLab session - a solutions development workshop using Design Thinking. Design Thinking is a methodology used to solve complex problems and find desirable solutions to benefit business stakeholders. Attendees will draw from each other’s experiences to frame their organizations’  pain points from a “user” point of view, and prototype solutions.
