What is one of the biggest misconceptions about being an attorney or the legal function itself?
The biggest misconception about legal functions is that we create barriers or roadblocks that slow down business momentum. In actuality, throughout my in-house career I’ve been surrounded by thoughtful and creative attorneys who always prioritize moving the business forward by focusing on a practical approach to risk. This is especially true in the TV/film industry where the production cycles are fast paced and hesitancy or conservativeness could gravely hinder the creative of a project.
What’s a piece of unconventional advice you’ve received that was helpful?
How you do anything is how you do everything.
What song or album motivates you the most?
Any and every Prince song. If he can play all twenty-seven instruments on an album I can get through my day.
