Editorial Reviews


"Ugo Draetta draws on his rich and distinguished career at the intersection of law, business, leadership, academia and public service to produce a straightforward, seminal guidebook to the role of in-house corporate counsel. The insights, guidance and advice that he presents apply universally regardless of one's jurisdiction. As he cogently observes, in our highly inter-connected world of global business and commerce, the distinctions among us diminish daily as the principles applicable to those called to counsel global enterprises converge. Dr. Draetta pioneered in guiding his corporate clients through the relentless and rapid changes encountered by companies struggling to adapt profitably to the growing complexities of global business. His experiences uniquely position him to provide this guide to CEO’s and in-house lawyers who will follow this pioneer as this process of globalization continues to unfold. This book should be required reading for every new CEO and for every lawyer who is offered the opportunity to join a company or business as an in-house counsel, regardless of the extent of their experience." -J. Keith Morgan, Senior Vice President & General Counsel, GE Capital

"This is terrific. When it's published I want to use it as 'assigned reading' for new lawyers and new CEOs at Siemens." -Peter Solmssen, Member of the Managing Board and General Counsel, Siemens AG

"I had the privilege of working with Ugo Draetta when we were both business general counsel at GE. His book is a reflection of his great talent as a lawyer and a business partner. He understands the theory and the practice of lawyers adding value to a business. It is an essential book to read for all in-house counsel and business leaders, particularly CEOs." ---Frank Blake, Chairman and CEO, The Home Depot

"Ugo Draetta provides an insightful look at the role of in-house counsel, particularly in the increasingly important international arena. This book is a great resource for lawyers contemplating an in-house legal role, as well as senior business executives who wish to maximize the value added by their legal departments. Ugo Draetta provides a concise and thoughtful view of the challenges faced by in-house lawyers, as well as successful strategies for problem solving and career development." ---Jay Clemens, Senior Vice President and Deputy General Counsel, eBay Inc.

"Professor Draetta has served as an invaluable advisor to scores of experienced counsel in major multinational corporations. He has a well-seasoned appreciation for the relationship between business leaders and their lawyers and direct experience with practical ways in which advice is most effectively provided." ---Mark G. Califano, SVP & Managing Counsel, Litigation, American Express
