About the HPC Global Summit and Digital Village

Join the leading global forum for General Counsel and Chief Legal Officers in the modern legal industry. Network with peers and showcase your products and services in our always-on, interactive Digital Village. World-class speakers and panelists will address the role and expectations of today’s General Counsel and Chief Legal Officers. What are today’s Strategic Imperatives – and what are the highest priorities for today’s legal leaders.

Never has so much been at stake for this peer group and the businesses they help lead. Modern businesses rely so heavily on good counsel – and for service providers it’s critical to understand who they are and what makes them tick. In the everyday professional life of General Counsel and Chief Legal Officers, what makes the difference between a “yes” or a “no” decision. The buying power of the legal industry is shifting and understanding both the people and economic dynamics is essential.

The 3-event Global Summit Series is focused on the evolving role, aspirations and expectations of General Counsel and Chief Legal Officers. The HPC Global Village (“the Village”) is a 24/7/365 always-on, interactive destination for service providers and product suppliers in the modern legal industry. HPC has partnered with Cosmonauts in the production and day-to-day operation of the Global Summit Series and the Digital Village.

The Digital Village “never sleeps”. This 24/7/365 destination is invaluable for the growing number of buyers researching suppliers and solutions in the legal marketplace. This need has been heightened by travel restrictions impacting business travel to events – and more businesses exploring new ways to work remotely and efficiently. For product vendors and service providers, the Digital Village provides a public, ongoing presence for interacting with visitors and meeting prospective customers at a fraction of the cost of traditional sales & marketing alternatives.
