Building an Outstanding Legal Team offers a fresh perspective from the front lines of the in-house counsel revolution. Arising out of Bjarne Tellmann’s deep experience and passion for building effective legal teams, this book is an invaluable resource for anyone involved in the critical mission of preparing the next generation of corporate counsel leaders.

That mission is critical and this book is crucial because in an increasingly complex global economy, we need a new framework for corporate counsel leadership and legal teams to empower in-house lawyers to help their businesses to create long-term value through both creativity AND integrity, finding common ground at the intersection of strong corporate values and cutting edge strategy.
