The Corporate Counsel Show: Lessons from your law department colleagues

02 March 2022 By Robyn Tongol

It is imperative that professionals across law departments better understand and appreciate where their colleagues are coming from so that collaboration and collegiality can be better fostered.

On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by NOVA Entertainment group general counsel and company secretary Ben Willis and senior legal counsel Samantha Walker to discuss the need for legal counsel of all stripes to acknowledge and respect the needs of their colleagues at different levels within a law department so as to be a trusted adviser not only to one’s business but also for those within one’s immediate team.

Mr Willis and Ms Walker also delve into their personal investments in legal work in the media space, how and why that landscape has shifted in recent times, the importance of being motivated by the work of one’s law department, why different thinking has been required for lawyers in this space and what lawyers in media can look forward to.
