Breached, Bothered and Bewildered: How Even the Biggest and Best are at Risk

Data management and data security are topics at the forefront of many conversations these days and even the biggest and best are at risk. Join us to hear the importance of truly understanding your data footprint and what it means to build a culture of security across your business.

Kevin Brocklehurst – AIA, Regional Director of Investment Governance & Legal

From Samurais to a Modern Army – Legal & Governance as a System

Kevin oversees a unique department which combines legal and governance. Breaches, errors and alerts compel a human intervention. essentially looking at what went wrong. Each change made toward automation through technology and (for lawyers) better inputs into the technology, increases the efficiency of functions charged with oversight and assurance. Thus we can test data rather than fly around the region doing manual investigations

Reasons to Attend SOLID

Our day will be broken into four themed segments focused on innovation and disruption. We will focus on challenges and barriers, identify opportunities for meaningful change, and develop solutions for all market segments.

100 legal professionals and subject matter experts from law departments, law firms, alternative legal service providers, and academics.

Purposefully moderated tables with curated participants from all market segments.

Participants will switch their tables 2 times throughout the day.

“Solid is unique in size, format and quality of participants and presenters. I met so many talented professionals, given the intimate setting I was able to collaborate with others who shared similar challenges, was inspired by the innovative ways others approach them and gained strategic insight into emerging capabilities that I could bring back and apply. It’s a great forum to expand your insights into innovative approaches that are driving real improvements for how corporations deliver legal services. It’s not your ordinary conference if you want to engage in a thought provoking learning experience while expanding your network. I would highly recommend it.”


Deb Tatar


VP Corporate Systems at MetLife

“If you can attend this, I highly recommend it! Compliance Discovery Solutions was at SOLID East last month in NYC. The format allows for an exchange of ideas with a variety of legal professionals. In one day, I felt like I learned as much or more as I’ve learned from multi-day conferences!”


Maria Maccarone


Vice President, Client Solutions at Compliance Discovery Solutions

“Before SOLID I would say I was a bit of an accidental innovator. I was naturally interested in looking for new and better ways to structure and manage my legal department and spend, but I was not aware of the incredible depth of knowledge out there about how to do that most effectively. SOLID brought all of the pieces together for me and allowed me to make lasting connections with others who are innovating within their teams and across the legal industry. I now have a much deeper understanding of how to draw upon a wide array of resources and technology to reshape what we are doing in a way that drives more value for less total spend. It’s also just a really fun and interesting group of people and the whole experience has expanded my circle of go-to colleagues.”


Jennifer Warner


VP Legal at Columbia Sportswear Company

“I think the most valuable thing for me has been the chance to collaborate with, but also to listen to clients. Getting to hear first hand from GC’s and the C-Suite about their pain points and expectations is truly valuable. It really helps us to “sense check” and to ensure we are not only listening, but hearing and acting on what our clients expect and need from their outside counsel.”
