Thomson Reuters has appointed a new head of in-house at Practical Law Australia, whom it says will lead the firm’s expansion and refinement of its in-house Resource Centre.
Tyrilly Csillag, who joined Practical Law’s commercial team in 2017 and boasts “over a decade of experience working within in-house legal teams for multinational, national corporate and also government entities”, has been elevated to the role of head of in-house.
Speaking about her appointment, Ms Csillag said that in-house lawyers are required to provide “give quick, accurate and effective legal advice on a wide range of matters that arise every day”.
“The In-House Resource Centre focuses Practical Law’s resources to meet the needs of an in-house lawyer, from the practicalities of running a legal department to providing legal training to the business and company secretarial. It’s a vital tool for in-house counsel, like me,” she said.
In a statement, Thomson Reuters said that prior to joining Practical Law, Ms Csillag served as legal counsel for IBM and managed lawyers practising in the A/NZ and Asia-Pacific legal teams. She has also worked as a solicitor in private practice, including within the knowledge management function, it continued.
The appointment follows Thomson Reuters’ hiring of Tim Perry as the new director of Practical Law.
