Resolving Tensions Between the General Counsel, CEO & Board

Episode Summary

Inside America’s Boardrooms welcomes the legendary Ben Heineman, Jr., former SVP and GC for General Electric. There are few board governance movers and shakers more qualified to discuss the partnership that needs to exist between inside counsel and the board of directors. Reflecting on the evolution of internal counsel, Heineman penned a book titled, The Inside Counsel Revolution: Resolving The Partner-Guardian Tension.

Heineman joins host TK Kerstetter to review the book’s highlights and his views on how successful GCs, CEOs, and boards handle their partnership without giving up their guardian or fiduciary duties.
