How Jeff is building a better working world

“I work with clients from across the world, helping them to navigate an increasingly complex and challenging environment and define the future state of their legal function to better help the business meet strategic goals and succeed. This transformation is often driven from a need to meet new rules and regulations, and the legal teams are the part of the business which best understand those drivers of change.”
