The Corporate Counsel Show: Bringing a ‘true understanding of an asset’s life cycle’

25 May 2022 By Robyn Tongol

As a property lawyer, what gets Lisa Briese out of bed in the morning is seeing buildings get built. Having spent over 16 years in-house, she now works as an external provider with a team that moved from the in-house realm into an incorporated legal practice – a move which, she says, offers substantial perspective on how lawyers can serve clients and what those clients need from their lawyers.

On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Arena Law executive counsel Lisa Briese to discuss how and why her team moved from in-house to the external realm – something she says she is seeing “more and more” from in-house lawyers, and the vocational and administrative reasons for corporate counsel to reconfigure the day-to-day makeup of their practices, as well as the lessons for providers and clients in doing so.

Ms Briese also reflects on her passion for property law, the joy of being able to tangibly appreciate the work she does while walking down the street, constructing what one’s day looks like once one reaches a certain level, and appreciating what one’s personal boundaries must be.
