WHY ENGAGE INTERIM / PART TIME GENERAL COUNSEL / LEGAL HEAD

“With increased thrust on compliance and governance today’s businesses face a dynamic business environment with enormous focus on ethics & compliance, governance and disclosure.”

The need of the hour is to have a legal strategy to mitigate risk, adopt a culture of ethics & compliance, have effective contract and litigation management thus enabling business to have a competitive edge while insulating them from Regulatory scrutiny.

Today, a General Counsel (Legal Head) promotes a culture of ethics and compliance within the organization, while developing a legal strategy which will improve transparency and governance. In today’s world the legal function is expected to be a proactive team member who would contribute in formulating sound business strategies without compromising on compliance. The person should skilfully balance the role of strategist, advisor and executor.
