General Counsel: from technical expert to valued business partners

Our experience of working with General Counsel (‘GC’) is telling us that many aspire to be seen as a strategic partner and a leader of the business, as well as a legal adviser.

In order for GCs to have an effective role at board level, not only must there be an aspiration from the GCs to engage at that level, but there must also be a recognition by the Board of the value of this contribution and the real potential impact that GCs can bring to the table.
