Olga V. Mack, CEO of Parley Pro, has recently written General Counsel Advising in Unfamiliar Areas—Collaboration is Key. In this white paper, she shares with Bloomberg Law how to build an environment conducive to collaboration.
As COVID-19 makes its way into boardrooms around the world, many lawyers are finding themselves in uncharted territory.
