Furthermore, the General Counsel will hold a leadership position within our legal department, where they will oversee a team of lawyers and legal professionals.
In this leadership role, they will be expected to set the department's strategic direction, manage budgets effectively, and make high-level legal decisions that carry significant implications for the entire organization.
