Strategic legal and business advisor, Sagesse Ltd
Emma's professional bio / interests
I bring a commercial legal perspective to strategic guidance, having been a commercial lawyer working in international environments for 20 years. I enjoy helping C-suite, senior leadership & legal teams with different aspects of strategy, especially legal, compliance, governance, sustainable business and technology/process improvement. I've been a commercial lawyer in-house for 10 years (twice at the GC level for large multinational corporates) and in private practice in an international firm based in the City (London) for 10 years before that. I decided to work independently in 2020 in order to use my varied experience where it is of most value. I have experience in a variety of sectors and fields including sustainable business, ESG, FMCG, international trade, shipping, logistics, defence, pharma, outsourced services. Looking forward to sharing peer to peer knowledge within this community.
