General Counsel & Legal Leaders Practice

General counsel and legal leadership have been expanding their sphere of influence within organizations. They are valued business partners who foresee changes within the market and business and quickly protect organizations and position it to prosper.

About the Practice

Great legal leaders are now business drivers.

The role of general counsel and other legal leaders has evolved from the office of “no” to that of a strategic business partner and influencer. In addition to being the organization’s counsel, legal leaders are faced with emerging risks such as data protection, security and privacy, and intellectual property loss. They are also involved with decisions ensuring a healthy and safe workplace as well as being on the forefront of tackling equity issues. With these additional responsibilities, general counsels and legal leaders must understand business and be flexible, supportive, and calming leaders who can balance the needs of the business without sacrificing ethics and integrity.

Our General Counsel & Legal Leaders Practice works with those legal leaders who understand business and have the foresight to anticipate challenges and risks. Whether your organization is looking to build an in-house legal department, expand your current representation, or hire a chief compliance officer, our team can help you find the right Difference Maker™ for your organization.
