It isn’t really “About Us” at all, but about you.IMG_2362

We share a genuine empathy and respect for life in-house.

We want to help you accelerate personal development, improve team effectiveness and develop your legal services strategies. We feel we have a unique perspective based on first-hand experience of being general counsel and business leaders in addition to consulting with, mentoring and training in-house lawyers around the world since the year 2000.

We were founded to work with in-house lawyers.

Our team comprises a core group of consultants who have worked as General Counsel and in other senior legal or business roles, and a small group of brilliant associates who have significant other roles, but who also support our projects, programmes and events and mentor for us as well.

Few other teams have the depth of understanding of the issues and opportunities or have worked in this environment with such success. This team, excellently supported by our Editorial Board, is responsible for the reputation and credibility that LBC Wise Counsel has attained…

…and we would love to work with you.
