Become a T-Shaped Legal Team™

Most corporate and government legal and compliance departments have started to make some changes to reduce cost or increase efficiency.  

Doing the same things more efficiently at lower cost is important but only to the extent that it allows you to do new, more effective, things that add more value for your organisation - true innovation. To do that you need more than a few changes to improve things. You need to transform your team into a T-shaped Team™ and your lawyers into T-shaped In-house Lawyers™.

Making changes to improve is difficult but transformation is even harder. It involves knowing when and how to use, develop and apply technology. It also requires many other things including re-imagining your purpose and the way you work, a new vision and mindset for the team and individuals, a range of new knowledge and skills and a specific and comprehensive plan. However, the reality is that coping with everyday demands leaves little time to think about - let alone identify and implement - transformation.

AlternativelyLegal was formed to address that problem. Unlike other consultants and trainers, its founder:

  • has over 25+ years of global experience as an in-house lawyer using 'non-traditional' skills and also business experience developing legal technology 

  • provides truly independent guidance because he is not using the consulting or training as an opportunity to sell legal services, talent on demand or technology

  • has developed a unique, comprehensive, end-to-end program specifically designed for in-house departments that will challenge traditional thinking and provide you with a structured transformation framework

  • has personally delivered his programs around the world to numerous brand name global legal teams and focuses exclusively on helping in-house teams transform.

Contact AlternativelyLegal if you are interested in becoming a T-Shaped Legal Team and helping your lawyers to become T-Shaped In-house Lawyers.  I will help you to deliver more value to your clients, broaden your skill set, become more marketable and do more varied, interesting and enjoyable work.  


My workshops provide a comprehensive framework for legal department leaders to transform their teams into a T-Shaped Legal Team and also training and guidance to help individual lawyers want to change and develop 'non-traditional' skills to become T-Shaped Lawyers. My clients can also retain me to consult, coach and/or mentor as a Transformation & Innovation Partner for the leaders and/or individuals on the team.  


My focus is exclusively on in-house legal departments but I can and do help legal service providers conceive, develop and deliver new technology and non-legal services for your in-house clients.
