Legal Officers


Principal Connections Legal Practice focuses on helping corporations, associations, not-for-profits, and professional services firms attract, develop, and retain best-in-class General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officers as well as other leaders and their direct reports. As the roles of legal leaders have evolved from technicians to that of strategic business partners, ensuring you have executives who possess multifaceted leadership skills is crucial. We offer a full range of solutions designed to address our clients’ talent needs — from strategic search services, competency-based assessments, and engaging, interactive high-potential leadership development programs to one-on-one coaching, strategic talent design, and succession planning.

The conscience of the company.

Boards of directors, CEOs, and senior leaders have dramatically redefined the role of General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officers. Risk management, a framework of global regulations across industries, and the complexity of managing intellectual property in a technology-enabled world are just a few of the pressures and responsibilities Legal executives face. As companies grow and expand, the complexity of their legal function follows suit — and not all lawyers are created equal. You require top talent who thinks strategically and acts proactively to protect your organization and respond to opportunities. As General Counsel and other legal executives take on the role of “company conscience,” they must walk a fine line between ethics and integrity while leveraging the law to your full advantage.
