Wanted: New Zealand’s premier in-house counsel

NZ Lawyer is once again calling for nominations to its annual In-house Leaders list

Wanted: New Zealand’s premier in-house counsel

For the second year in a row, NZ Lawyer is putting together a showcase of the most influential in-house counsel. The In-house Leaders 2020 list will recognise those individuals who are best demonstrating leadership by driving innovation, efficiency and creativity in meeting the needs of their organisations.

Submit a nomination here.

“Being recognised externally is part of improving the visibility of in-house counsel, and enables me to pursue my ambition to change the industry. I use my platform to show others it’s not only ok to prioritise wellbeing over productivity, but it is actually the only way to have a sustainable career. Working smarter means doing less and leaving space—for me, that next step forward when dealing with a complex problem is often arrived at while out walking the dog, and rarely if ever behind a screen after 9 hours of ‘work,’” said 2019 In-House Leader Hayley Cassidy, chief general counsel (CLO), BNZ.
