Trust under fire: how to build strong relationships with your legal advisors




Trust has always mattered, but at a time when both in-house legal teams and law firms are operating in an increasingly pressurised environment, relational capital is a resource growing in value.

However, while much has been said about trust, less attention has been given to the practical insight about what it means to be worthy of trust. This is no small oversight. At a high-level, trustworthiness legitimises trust, and in the legal context, being a trusted advisor is not the same as being a trustworthy one. Trustworthiness is, arguably, the key to both understanding trust and building stronger relationships with internal and external stakeholders.  

In this session, the philosopher and founder of Philosophy at Work, Dr Brennan Jacoby will unpack the science of trustworthiness, and challenge us to see trust as a product of relationships rather than a component of transactional interactions.

By attending this webinar you will gain:  

  • A sharper ability to spot the power dynamics at play in their relationships with legal advisors
  • A deeper understanding of how trustworthiness works and why it supports trust
  • Greater confidence  to discern when too much trust has been given and set boundaries that sustain relationships with smoother transaction processes 
  • Examples of actions that can be taken to relate to your legal advisors in ways that show trustworthiness and, therefore, contribute to trust
This session with be moderated by Sinead Burke, Industry Expert, Morae and Matrina Garnett, Sales Director, Apperio.
