“A lawyer without history or literature is a mechanic, a mere working mason. If he possesses some knowledge of these, he may venture to call himself an architect.”
Members of the legal profession are working full-time to establish new laws and guidelines in an attempt to bring some control to the new era in which we are living. It is not easy to protect patents in China or on Internet, to create appropriate legal structures in an unstructured world or to write complex business agreements covering numerous jurisdictions. Tax specialists are working equally hard as banking secrecy disappears and certain banks are confronted with fiscal issues for the first time and as fiscal pressure increases in all major economies.
Similarly, as the economy becomes increasingly competitive, companies need to have even stronger financial controls and more up to date technology. Working capital needs to be managed effectively, costs must be controlled both in factories and at head office, invoicing and logistics need to operate in harmony, management reporting must be produced quickly and efficiently.
Whether you’re looking to recruit a general counsel, a lawyer specialised in intellectual property, an international tax specialist, a finance director, a chief accountant, a strategic consultant, an audit manager or any other related position, you need to work with a company that can help you find the candidate to make the difference.
