Ms Franklin emphasises the importance of team growth and nurturing young lawyers to ensure a seamless transition to the remote work environment. She also shares her strategies for maintaining strong relationships with stakeholders overseas, fostering collaboration, and securing a seat at the executive table.

The duo delve into the delicate balance between effecting change without disrupting the established organisational flow, especially for legal departments often seen as an impediment rather than an enabler. Ms Franklin offers practical advice on engaging with stakeholders and creating positive test cases to gain support for substantial changes.
