Shaping the future: Views from top Canadian general counsels
Canadian Lawyer InHouse has just published its third annual View feature for 2015 — an annual “look ahead” series of interviews in which they talk to leading Canadian corporate counsel about their current challenges and projects for the year.
While two of this year’s in-house lawyers have increasingly global interests, the other two are squarely domestically focused. All four have big projects on the go that will, in some cases, extend beyond the next five years. They all share the desire to give their internal clients the best legal advice that reflects the goals of the business.
For 2015, they interviewed:
- Mary Martin: executive vice president, general counsel, and corporate secretary, Metrolinx, Toronto
- Robert Hemstock: executive vice president, regulatory and legal services, Enmax Corp., Calgary
- Roger Fulton: executive vice president — human resources, general counsel, and corporate secretary, Linamar Corp., Guelph, Ont.
- Barbara Munroe: vice president, general counsel, and corporate secretary, WestJet Airlines, Calgary
As with every year, they also post video interviews with each of the interviewees as well as an overview of The View. The videos can be found here.
