It is integral for lawyers to have a community upon whom they can lean for personal and professional guidance. For three in-house counsel, living together in Sydney’s Lower North Shore means such support is never far away.

On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Thales Group legal counsel Lena Chapple, her sister and Stockland legal counsel, Eva Chapple, and Evas fiance and TabCorp senior corporate lawyer, Ashley Kerr. Together, the trio discusses what living together has taught them about the need for regular debriefing about the idiosyncratic stresses of in-house life, why it is crucial for corporate counsel to have a “squad”, and why looming challenges for those in-house mean that having mentors and networks will place one in good stead moving forward.
