Top 10 General Counsel - 2021
In this fast paced and competitive world, constant innovation is the only way for the companies to stay ahead of the curve. While innovation is the bloodline of businesses across all verticals, one must also keep a strict vigil on their competitors' innovation index as well, not to mention the most important staying compliant to various Government rules and regulatory compliances. While most companies rush to innovate and bring new products/services to market, due to inefficient market study and poor knowledge of the legalities involved, they often end-up falling prey to copyrights and IP rights frauds. This is where the need for a legal expert the General Counsel (GC) comes into play.
In recent times, the role of a GC has evolved drastically and garnered massive importance across verticals. A GC now not just takes care of any legal issues that the company might get into. He/she is now must also make sure that the company operates within the framework of the law at all times, while simultaneously analyzing and mitigating the risks involved in the process. Also, as companies are now keener than before to foray into foreign markets, the responsibilities a GC must shoulder has increased manifold.
CEO Insights magazine, along with a panel of industry experts leaders, researchers and CEOs have shortlisted such eminent GCs who not only have thorough knowledge of the domestic rules & regulations, but are also able to steer their companies clear of rough waters beyond Indian boundaries as well. In the current edition of CEO Insights Magazine's `Top 10 General Counsel - 2021', we highlight their tale of struggle, efforts, success and failure stories to empower others from the industry. Hope the issue inspires you to take challenges and emerge as winners.
