Norton Rose Fulbright unit to advise in-house legal teams

Global firm Norton Rose Fulbright has formed a legal operations consultancy for in-house lawyers, led by a former Barclays MD. According to a Law Gazette report, Stéphanie Hamon will head the practice, which will give management and operational advice to in-house legal teams at major financial institutions. The consultancy will offer strategic legal consulting, legal operations advice and assistance with project delivery. The firm said it was responding to the ‘the evolution of the role of in-house legal teams’ which now have the potential to ‘drive commercial value’. The consultancy will open next month and will form part of NRF Transform, the firm’s global change and innovation programme. Hamon, who was previously managing director and head of external engagement and legal at Barclays, said: ‘There are lots of advisers who help manage legal risk, but very few who help with being an effective business partner. Through Legal Operations Consulting, Norton Rose Fulbright will now do both.’
