Senior Director, Legal

Kuala Lumpur

"The work that we do is very wide ranging, everything from contract reviews to contract management."

How I put change in motion

As a Legal Senior Director, I oversee our Global Legal Network team of 1,200+ legal and contract management professionals located in 11 countries around the world. The work that we do is very wide ranging, everything from due diligence exercises, contract reviews and negotiations to compliance activities and contract management.

I’m motivated by working with smart, talented people who are driven and excited to learn and to grow in their respective areas, pushing boundaries and creating opportunities for the team.

I really enjoyed a recent project, where my role was to speak to our clients to help them in their legal shared services transformation journey. I made a difference by sharing the perspectives from our own 14-year journey of transformation.

Working across countries, we sought first to understand the client’s operating model, their goals, potential challenges to refine the information that would be hyper relevant to the client.

A day in my life

A typical day for me covers discussions around people, operations, strategy and planning aspects related to new projects. As the extended leadership team is located in many countries, the flexibility Accenture offers has been crucial for me to be able to interact with my team across the various time zones whilst balancing my family commitments.

My passion outside work, hands down, is spending time with my family and friends.

A secondary passion is sustainable living. I am completely inspired and aligned with Accenture’s commitment to 360-degree value, with sustainability as one of its six dimensions. This is a key challenge for humanity in the 21st century, surmountable if we act fast and act together.

"Legal technology will revolutionize the landscape of legal shared services."

My advice

It’s important that you love learning, are open to change and strive for excellence. People skills, problem-solving skills, strategy skills and innovation skills are important in a legal career of the future. I prioritize listening to my team on the ground, and I am on a continuous quest for ideas and learning that explore various future and industry trends.

Legal technology will revolutionize the landscape of legal shared services, and I am so excited to run toward this future—which will expand opportunities for my team.
