Spotlight shines on 2022's in-house icons

Agility has been the name of the game for in-house lawyers over the past few years as the ever-changing nature of COVID-19 forced businesses to constantly be on their toes regarding shifts in policy and restrictions.

In-house counsel had to quickly grasp what was going in terms of mandatory vaccination, public health orders and testing. Those in government also had to be ready with advice on initiatives and projects.

In such an environment, in-house counsel have grasped opportunities to upskill to meet the requirements of their evolving roles, and have leaned into serving as not just legal advisors but advisors to the business as a whole. They have collaborated across teams, helped to usher in new technology and guided companies in how they can better cater to the market.

This year’s crop of In-house Leaders showcased the value of in-house lawyers to an organisation through the way they led their companies in a time when businesses had to be very adaptable. The 47 that impressed the Australasian Lawyer team took on unprecedented challenges, championed innovation and ultimately benefited the legal profession overall.

Among these superstars is Probe Group’s senior legal counsel Jo Zaharopoulos.
