Laser Clinics Australia general counsel and company secretary Kristy Silbert discusses the issues, challenges and opportunities for legal counsel in the beauty industry on this week’s episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, with host Jerome Doraisamy.
The pair discuss what it is like to work as an in-house lawyer in an industry that is always evolving, the importance of general counsel having a seat at the table among senior leadership to ensure legal is prominent, and how she strikes a balance to ensure they are covered where legislation has not yet caught up.
Kristy also shares her advice for anyone looking to enter or shift over to the beauty space and the parallels between the industry and the banking royal commission.
