How to Become a Trusted Legal Advisor to Business Executives

Anne Kerwin Payne, an excellent legal recruiter whom I’ve known for years, asked several high-profile female General Counsel (GC’s) for their advice to junior attorneys who want to become a GC someday.

Catherine Valentine, the GC of Logitech, responded with these useful tips on the best path to becoming a GC.  I worked for Catherine for many years when she was the GC of Intuit.  I know first-hand that her advice is extremely valuable for any lawyer who wants to become a trusted advisor to business executives.
