While many attorneys aspire to be a General Counsel, the path to becoming a company’s chief legal officer can be even more convoluted than becoming a partner at a law firm. Recently, it was my pleasure to host an engaging panel discussion about what it takes to become a GC – and what takes to stay there – amongst three outstanding general counsels: Jason Ellis of Staples, Thanda Fields Brassard of Fiduciary Trust of New England, and Levina Wong of Veson Nautical.
Discussion topics included:
- The skills needed to be a General Counsel and how to get them
- How the GC interacts and interrelates with the Board of Directors and C-Suite.
- What you must do as General Counsel to understand the company’s business and stay in touch with the people who run it — from the CEO to the hourly employees.
