Organisational Change

In our Lawcast: Legal Gamechangers series, we explore how high-performing in-house legal teams approach and deliver creative solutions and long-term improvements. Our first episode features Jenny Whiteman, Managing Legal Counsel at Federated Hermes, a global leader in active, responsible investing. Jenny shares her thoughts on the benefits of an in-house role, and her secrets to success in the legal industry.

She challenges the notion of traditional lawyering, paving the way for a more dynamic, responsive, and tech-informed legal industry. At the heart of it all, Jenny reminds us of the importance of continuous learning and growth, challenging ourselves, and valuing relationships and opportunities. Watch the video to learn:
