To celebrate our annual GC Power List report, Legal Business this summer teamed up with DLA Piper and Thomson Reuters to hold an evening reception and debate to explore the topic of teamwork and give senior in-house counsel an informal chance to network.
Our discussion panel comprised British American Tobacco’s Western Europe legal head Benoit Belhomme, Credit Suisse’s EMEA general counsel (GC) Maria Leistner, ITV’s GC Andrew Garard, Diageo’s GC Siobhan Moriarty and AIG’s EMEA legal head Chris Newby. Bringing a private practice view to the proceedings was DLA Piper co-chair Sir Nigel Knowles, with Legal Business editor-in-chief Alex Novarese chairing the discussion. More than 50 senior in-house counsel attended the reception at the The Ivy’s private members’ club on 24 June.
The GC Power List will return in 2016.
