The Corporate Counsel Show: ‘You’ve got to find your voice and ask’

Too often, in-house lawyers are afraid that they won’t be seen as hardworking or committed. However, speaking up for what one needs in order to flourish actually demonstrates an ability to adapt and better manage the juggle.

On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Royal Melbourne Hospital chief legal officer and corporate secretary Fleur Katsmartin about her construction of a pseudo-maternity leave arrangement whereby she retains some work whilst being on leave, why such an arrangement works for her, how best to make such arrangements work in the post-pandemic new normal, and how in-house lawyers can ensure they are getting the best deal for themselves.

Ms Katsmartin also discusses her longstanding interest in the health sector, how she fared working as a sole in-house lawyer for a hospital during a global pandemic, the challenges arising during such an age, and lessons learnt for other corporate counsel from being at the coalface.
