When in-house lawyers talk to each other, they often find that they are all grappling with the same problems. Better understanding how to navigate those challenges, and facilitating such growth and development for corporate counsel, is fundamental for their ongoing success at a critical juncture.
On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy welcomes Are Media general counsel, company secretary and general manager of corporate Adrian Goss, who was recently elected as vice-chair of the global board of the Association of Corporate Counsel.
The pair talk about why it is important to put one’s hand up to serve the in-house legal community, the need for professional collegiality, what one can glean from such extracurricular work, what he hopes to achieve for in-house lawyers around the world, how he sees the role of legal counsel changing in the coming year and what Australian lawyers can learn from their global counterparts.
Mr Goss also delves into life as a legal counsel in the media industry, the issues and challenges that come with such work, the evolving opportunities in a changing market, the considerations with acquisitions and how best the law department can assist, and what he enjoys about his work.
