SuperConference draws a senior level audience of in-house counsel from Fortune 1000 and multi-national companies in the US. While the event is focused toward senior-level in-house counsel, given the issues and nature of the content, SuperConference also draws participation from non-legal C-Suite executives as well as law firm senior partners.

Libby Kitslaar will moderate a panel entitled "GC + CFO: Risk Mitigation in M&A and Beyond." That panel will be held from 2:45 - 3:45 pm on May 22, 2018. Panelists will include Brenda Furlow, Senior Vice President, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary, Bio-Techne; Jan Hamblin, Senior Vice President, General Counsel, Cramer-Krasselt; and Zoe Vantzos, Assistant General Counsel, Compass Minerals.

The panel will discuss why it is critical for global organizations to integrate their legal and finance departments. While the CFO analyzes financial reports, the GC addresses business and societal issues such as regulation, enforcement, geopolitical risk, etc., both roles are highly experienced risk managers, and this session will highlight the many ways that GCs and CFOs can collaborate to manage M&A transactions, as well as across the board.
