As a Diamond Sponsor of the Ascent 2017 Conference -Women Leaders: Lawyers Learning the Business of Business, Fisher Phillips invites you to this upcoming continuing legal education program designed specifically for emerging law department leaders seeking to accelerate their career trajectory. 

Fisher Phillips is excited to host the labor and employment portion of this initiative presented by Chief Legal Executive on May 3-4, 2017 at the JW Marriott Atlanta/Buckhead, in Atlanta, Georgia. The Ascent Conference is the first program of its kind in the Southeast, offering seven practice group tracks, panel discussions with experts and a variety of topical breakout sessions highly focused on business acumen: learning the business of business. Ascent 2017 will provide both knowledge and experiential learning to help participants broaden their perspective, communicate more effectively and refocus their career development towards becoming trusted advisors.

Attendees will:

  • Participate in an interactive program focused on lawyers understanding not only legal issues, but also business issues. Today’s law department leader must address business problems from a multidimensional perspective with a focus on reputational, operational, financial and legal risks.
  • Ascent’s primary focus is on issues of importance to business leaders, so faculty includes CFOs and other non-legal experts.  These leaders will share their perspectives on the characteristics, behaviors and best practices of lawyers who are great business advisors first, and lawyers second.
  • Benefit from a strong focus on financial acumen, a critical competency for direct reports and general counsel, which is not covered at most conferences.

If you want to attend a conference that provides legal updates, there are a multitude of options. However, if you want to engage in experiential learning that enhances your ability to engage senior business leaders in your company on their most critical business issues, Ascent 2017 is targeted to meet your needs.

Please join us May 3-4, 2017 in Atlanta at the Ascent 2017 Conference to gain the tools and knowledge that will enhance your role as a senior law department leader. For further questions, please contact customer service at
