Intelligent Challenge is a phrase that arose in a conversation I once had with a mentor of mine. To me it means the ability to ask difficult and thought provoking questions in an intelligent and appropriate way.
It’s both inquisitive and enthusiastic. It’s about moving out of comfort zones, learning and growing.
The blog is for those working in, or with an interest in, the business of law. Lawyers in private practice. Corporate counsel. Business development directors. HR professionals. Finance specialists. Managing partners. Consultants. Information providers. Paralegals. IT Directors. The list goes on. All are welcome.
The content examines the business of law through the lens of my experience. Shaped by eight years working in law firms (from small, to national to City). Then forged by four years in the legal team of a US multinational (plus a year working in market and product strategy for the same company) my views were then honed by 18 months of consulting work with law firms and a year leading the LPO division of an Indian business process outsourcer.
I’m now working with a legal information provider, and hope that this continues to develop my insights into the profession. If that all sounds a bit serious, the blog can’t really be separated from me, which means that while authenticity and integrity are critical, so is a sense of humour which I hope comes across in the blog.
I truly hope you enjoy.
