Editorial Reviews


"With Indispensable Counsel: The Chief Legal Officer in the New Reality, E. Norman Veasey and Christine T. Di Guglielmo have written a field manual to aid CLOs with their new tasks. More important, the authors have illuminated how Congress, primarily through Sarbanes-Oxley, has inserted the long arm of federal law into executive suites and boardrooms to influence private-sector decision making, using the CLO as cat's paw."
--George Mellon, The Wall Street Journal

"Indispensable Counsel fills a significant void for today's general counsel and those who want to understand corporate legal practice today. It portrays the full range of issues that a general counsel deals with. Judge Veasey and Christine Di Guglielmo have tremendous stature within the legal community and they have used their first-hand experience to create a thoughtful and practical compass for the inside counsel, who places such a pivotal role with management and the board in today's corporation."
--Louise Parent, Executive Vice President & General Counsel
American Express Company

"Veasey and Di Guglielmo bring together their vast knowledge and wealth of experience to create a masterful resource for corporate law practitioners. Indispensable Counsel is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the responsibilities of corporate counsel in this increasingly dynamic and competitive global marketplace."
--Thomas L. Sager, Senior Vice President & General Counsel
DuPont Company

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I recently started a position in house counsel of a fortune 500 company and read this book beforehand. I felt that this book gave me a great background and general idea of what my position would be like and what I need to do in order to perform my job well. I highly recommend.
