John Poulsen, Squire Sanders
Encouraging lawyers to be brave and take the ultimate leap of faith can be very difficult indeed – but that’s just what Squire Sanders’ Australian managing partner has achieved. Having led and managed the combination of the large part of a national firm with a top 10 global law firm, Poulsen has engineered its growth in Australia, with a focus on positive workplace culture that follows Jim Collins’ Good to Great motto – getting the right people on the bus so that the rest looks after itself. During his tenure, the firm also built a successful financial practice from scratch– something that’s certainly been helped by having Poulsen on the bus.
