On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with How To Contract founder and president, and former Tesla lawyer, Laura Frederick about her legal career to date, her experiences at Tesla and what life is like working for one of the world’s most talked-about companies, her background and interest in contracts and how and why she decided to “niche down” into this area of practice.

Ms Frederick also explains why niching down was so important for her as a corporate counsel, rather than trying to be the jack-of-all-trades, why she decided to leave in-house to run her own firm, why having freedom in one’s day-to-day is so critical, what freedom means to her, and how best other corporate counsel can source such flexibility and autonomy over their careers.
