NEW YORK, 21 March 2023 — Deloitte launches global CLO Program, a comprehensive suite of offerings designed to support general counsel and legal leaders in navigating the intersection of law, business, management, tech and strategy.
The Chief Legal Officer (“CLO”) Program joins Deloitte’s Global Executive Program C-Suite offerings and its launch is the latest step in support of Deloitte's expansion as one of the world’s largest providers of legal and related legal business and management consulting services – a global service footprint that spans more than 75 countries.
Through the global CLO Program’s suite of offerings, CLOs will be given the opportunity to immerse themselves and their teams in training, learning and research reflective of Deloitte's deep role-based and industry knowledge, and its breadth of technical capabilities – all specifically designed and focused through the lens of the CLO and tailored to the context of local and regional business practices and regulatory frameworks.
“We understand the strong demand for in-house legal counsel (or General Counsel) to shift from being legal experts or risk management experts, towards assuming a more strategic business role as the CLO, a legal specialist who is a business partner and value creator.” says Carlo Gagliardi, Deloitte Global CLO Program Leader, “The CLO Program lies at the intersection of legal perspective and the business mindset and is our long-term commitment to transformation and growth, helping the CLO stay on top of changes in the global legal landscape and in-house function. Our clients can be confident that with the Global CLO Program they have a trusted resource for knowledge sharing, career building, and networking with peers and experts in the legal and management fields.”.
The global CLO Program will build on Deloitte's existing US CLO Program, established in 2015. “The US CLO Program team is excited to serve as the model for our colleagues globally and to use our experience to support the expansion of this impactful and successful program across several international geographies,” says Don Fancher, Deloitte US CLO Program Leader, “Growing the international scope of the program will allow us to continue to support clients in the legal executive role”.
Leveraging US experience, the first initiative of the Global CLO Program is the launch of the EMEA Next Generation CLO Academy in Milan (Italy) in May 2023. Select aspiring GCs and CLOs have been invited to join a unique experience focused on leadership, self-reflection and the opportunity to build an exclusive peer network – all designed to equip attendees to successfully step into the CLO role.
