General counsel, and law departments, who move to take on more responsibility for their businesses will have a “real opportunity to make a difference”. Being visible, Teresa Allan believes, ensures the work of that department is more significant and consequential.

On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Capgemini vice-president, general counsel and ethics and compliance officer Teresa Allan to discuss lessons learned from undertaking acquisitions in the age of coronavirus for law departments, taking on more work so as to ensure the legal team has a seat at the table, and how such increased workload improves the standing of the law department.

The pair also delve into striking the right balance between proactivity and reactivity in taking on more work, personal reflections on being more than just the general counsel, practical guidance for those looking to broaden the scope of their work and navigating pushback to such a move.
