GC + Finnegan: Trusted Advisor – Women in Leadership


Enforcement Predictions for 2021

Since November 2020, white-collar defense lawyers have faced one question: will the Biden administration change US priorities when it comes to pursuing a range of economic crimes? Generally, it takes a relatively long time for a new administration to have an impact on white-collar crime enforcement. White-collar matters often take a long time to process: …

Ahmad Ismail, general legal counsel, Saudi Aramco Jubail Refinery Company

I believe the most important item for general counsel is to be a good role model and especially when protecting against white-collar crime. General counsel, many of whom advise at the board level, are seen as critical enablers to ensure that the company maintains and sustains its ethical behaviour. Earlier this year nobody knew anything …

My past in-house roles were in fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies where I had international remit and exposure to the benefits of legal operations and using digital solutions in European and US markets. Having a cross-border perspective has really shaped my legal career and how I view in-house lawyering, particularly with respect to ensuring …

Jennifer Salinas | Executive Director of Global Litigation | Lenovo

“This is what a lawyer looks like” I have always been a strong believer in the value of engaging with communities directly.
