How to be a business partner - Richard Mabey, CEO of Juro
‘Become a strategic partner to your business.’ It’s the universal aspiration for in-house counsel at the moment, but it’s easier said than done. If you manage to dig yourself out of mountains of paperwork and process, and find some genuine headspace, what should you do with it?
Here are five ways in-house counsel can transform from reactive, risk-averse lawyer to proactive, strategic business partner.
Redefining the role of in-house lawyer as strategic business partner. An interview with Matt Redding, GC at Six Degrees Group
As business needs continue to shift and face ever-increasing challenges and opportunities, so has the expectation around what the legal function is looked for to deliver to its organisation. Once, the value of in-house counsel rested predominantly on delivering expert, astute advice timeously – at an affordable cost. But as Matt Redding, General Counsel from Six Degrees Group explains, the role has significantly evolved. Today, in-house counsel must demonstrate their value in more innovative ways.
In this interview with Lucy Glyn, Market Development Director at Lexis Nexis, Matt talks about how the role of the in-house lawyer has changed since his legal career began in 2000, and the key areas where lawyers should better align their focus towards business needs to show their worth.

Businesses need a culture in which GCs are routinely consulted by the executive board and given the opportunity to help shape strategy.
Sophie Gould talked to Veta T Richardson, President & CEO of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC), about how ACC is advocating for GCs as key influencers of corporate culture and what needs to happen to get GCs’ voices heard.
