The Corporate Counsel Show: Does corporate legal need a new vision?

On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with former international in-house lawyer AlternativelyLegal founder and chief executive Peter Connor about what makes life as a corporate counsel so great, from his perspective, the need for such lawyers to transition even further into the business realm and develop corresponding acumen, and why business concerns have to be at the forefront as opposed to legal ones.

Mr Connor explains the nexus between business acumen and professional agility, unpacks the T-shaped approach for corporate counsel, how to understand and appreciate what the corporate vision can and must be, practical steps to turn one’s self into more of a businessperson, ensuring the current climate isn’t impeding one’s ability to further develop, balancing the need to transition against other urgent priorities for the law department, and why unlocking new pathways and opportunities will be so rewarding for those adopting the right approach.
