Providing Tailor-Made Solutions

Content

For a global company like ours, it is important that we conduct both our internal and external business in a responsible way. It is important we build relationships with our stakeholders. Legal supports the business on a broad variety of matters by providing tailor-made legal solutions and advice, while continuously balancing between optimal legal protection and business interests.

It's important to understand the business

“From managing legal risk with external counsels, to organising internal trainings for various business units to avoid legal claims, to drafting and reviewing contractual documents, the role of a Company Secretary/Legal Adviser is as diverse as the many challenges a business can face. As Company Secretary/Legal Adviser, my responsibilities make it essential that I know enough of everything happening in every aspect of the business. I start my day in a different meeting with a different department every day because it is important that I understand the business in order to ensure we improve efficiency and impact.” - Olubukunola Olateru, Company Secretary & Legal Adviser
