Building an Outstanding Legal Team
Battle-Tested Strategies from a General Counsel
By Bjarne P. Tellmann

In this practical “how to” guide, Bjarne P Tellmann, General Counsel and SVP of Pearson, draws upon more than 20 years of leading top legal organisations across Europe, Asia and the United States to provide a structured plan for upgrading your legal team in an age of disruption.

The challenge: In an era of exponential change, the role of the general counsel (GC) has become one of the most complex, intense and challenging in the corporate world. GCs, must lead, unify and inspire diverse groups of people across the globe with subtlety and diplomacy. The stakes have never been higher and the consequences of getting it wrong can be existential. GCs must react to these challenges with ever-fewer resources and at a time when the legal profession itself is undergoing disruption.

The response: To succeed in this “new normal”, GCs must become their own chief executives. They must lead, communicate, inspire, build cultures, manage talent, formulate and execute strategies, ensure efficacy, anticipate and manage risk and manage quality control – all in addition to being top-notch lawyers.

This book gives GCs the battle plan they need to get there in three parts.  Part I looks at the “hardware”, including how to assess risk, design winning teams, optimise spend, choose the best partners, and select smart technology.

Part II focuses on the “software”, including how to nurture a world-class legal culture and develop talent.

Part III considers two highly critical threads that weave their way through the transformational journey: change management and the need to develop a strategic roadmap. While primarily aimed at in-house legal leaders, the book will also have broader appeal, as many of the approaches and principles are universal. In particular, law firm partners, lawyers at all levels and leaders from other support functions will find much to draw upon, as will government lawyers, suppliers to the legal industry, such as alternative service providers and technology outfits and consultants.

The book will also be of interest to academics and law students teaching and taking courses on in-house legal practice.

The Virago Story

“Scholars in the fields of book history, publishing studies, and gender studies will welcome the arrival of this book–an important and long overdue study charting how one of the world’s most established feminist presses not only survived but also found ways to adapt and thrive in a radically restructured political and publishing landscape.” – Kate Eichhorn, The New School

The Virago Story
Assessing the Impact of a Feminist Publishing Phenomenon.  (Protest, Culture and Society)
By Catherine Riley

The 1970s witnessed a renaissance in women’s print culture, as feminist presses and bookshops sprang up in the wake of the second-wave women’s movement. At four decades’ remove from that heady era, however, the landscape looks dramatically different, with only one press from the period still active in contemporary publishing: Virago.

This engaging history explains how, from modest beginnings, Virago managed to weather epochal transformations in gender politics, literary culture, and the book publishing business. Drawing on original interviews with many of the press’s principal figures, it gives a compelling account of Virago’s place in recent women’s history while also reflecting on the fraught relationship between activism and commerce.
