The Corporate Counsel Show: One lawyer’s path to general counsel

By Tasha Levy|20 November 2019

Forging a career path within the legal profession that suits your lifestyle preferences can be a case of trial and error, as was the case for chief legal counsel at Canon Australia, David Field.

David talks to host Jerome Doraisamy on this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show about the work-life imbalance he experienced within both BigLaw and the in-house sector, the qualities required to become a successful general counsel, and the key differences between in-house counsel and private practice.
