Matheson has today announced its sponsorship of Ireland’s GC Powerlist from 2019 as part of a three year agreement. The GC Powerlist recognises in-house counsel that have made a notable impact on their company or industry through innovation, creativity, and excellence in technical advice or advancing a working model that other corporate counsel should try to emulate.
Commenting on the partnership, Michael Jackson Managing Partner at Matheson said;
“In today’s increasingly complex legal and regulatory environment, in-house legal teams play an even greater role in helping businesses achieve their strategic goals. The GC is a key member of senior management teams in all successful organisations. The GC Powerlist has become synonymous with excellence in the legal industry, recognising professionals who combine legal excellence with an ability to make an exceptional contribution to the strategic direction of their businesses. Matheson is delighted to support the GC Powerlist in highlighting and recognising the best in Irish in-house legal talent.”
The 2019 Irish GC Powerlist will be celebrated in October at an event to recognise the top 100 in-house lawyers in Ireland today. Nominations will open shortly and law firm partners and in-house counsel are invited to nominate corporate counsel that have been instrumental in:
- changing or forming opinions within their company or industry;
- developing brilliant technical solutions to complex issues;
- creating innovative structures to ensure that the in-house function is driving the business forward; or
- providing a business working model that other corporate counsel should follow
An experienced team of researchers will assess the nominations, and will interview the general counsel and any nominating-lawyer on the long-list before finalising. Additional information is available here.
