Reorganizing a Law Department to Support a Growing Global Business
A new general counsel at a global engineering, procurement and construction company inherited an experienced team of lawyers that were highly capable, but were not ideally organized to serve a growing, global business and were not supported by a sophisticated operations function.
- Designed and delivered a new organizational structure that clearly defined roles and responsibilities and provided for a legal operations function to support the team with process and technology initiatives.
The legal team is better aligned to support a growing business with increased legal support for critical projects and geographies. As a result, the law department is viewed as a more strategic partner by its clients and senior management.
