Global Leaders in Law and Morrison & Foerster have recently collaborated on a global study entitled ‘The GC {Re}Defined’ that will be launched on the 29 April. We gathered input from 200 GCs and other senior legal leaders across the US, Asia and Europe to explore the way in which the role of the General Counsel will evolve, and what might facilitate or inhibit personal achievement for the individual GC.

The role of the GC is multi-dimensional and full of opportunities to influence key decisions across an organisation. The GC {Re}Defined report identified that the GC as a business leader comprises six key elements: law, people, business, process, risk and technology. Building upon the themes of the report, GLL and Morrison Foerster partner Dan Coppel interviewed Angela Yotov, the former General Counsel at Ratesetter, on being a culture creator, talent cultivator and becoming integral to the organisation.

Dan Coppel: What do you do or will you need to do to become integral to your CEO and board?

Angela Yotov: It’s about creating value. Demonstrating value-add to both parties as a business partner, not just translating legal advice. Becoming trusted enough that you are a general sounding board is the Holy Grail.
