Legal Department of the Year
n 2008 Lord Woolf made a raft of recommendations that were designed to transform BAE System's ethical policies. The defence giant's legal team has played a pivotal role implementing these changes, to the extent that the company is now regarded by many as operating the gold standard in this field. The steering committee set up to implement the Woolf Report recommendations was chaired by BAE general counsel Philip Bramwell, and the legal department contributed 18 lawyers to the implementation team. As part of this process, the legal team helped draft and implement a new global code of conduct. It also drafted and advised on an online training course on the new anti-corruption policies.
