As an Associate Director of Global Executive Search Firm EO Executives, I also head up the Finance and Legal Recruitment Practice. Over the years, I have worked with leading organisations to place industry leaders into their teams. From regularly speaking with this stakeholder group I have seen an increasing demand for a legal division in our specialist services, leading EO to expand our offerings and work with organisations to provide top talent forin-house legal roles.
For blue chip organisations, there is no questioning the need for an in-house lawyer but there can often be some disparity around what is required for smaller businesses. So, I spoke with highly experienced General Counsel Mark Hogarth to outline at the benefits of hiring an in-house legal counsel.
