Much is written about the transition from founder to CEO. But far less reported is the transition the inhouse legal team needs to undertake from startup to scale up to mature company.

In our DisruptiveTech webinar on 9 November, we explored this journey and the evolving role of the legal team in a fast growth company with our expert panel who have first-hand experience.

Moderated by our Head of Technology, Kolvin Stone, our speakers included:

  • James Sullivan, Chief Legal Officer at Ziglu. Previously Head of Legal at Monzo during a period of considerable change and high growth, supporting the Board and Executive team through two funding rounds, changes in executive leadership and various product launches.
  • Sam Ross, General Counsel at Remote. Previously GC at ComplyAdvantage and WorldRemit starting as WorldRemit’s first lawyer and building a team of 8 people as the company grew from 200 to 800 staff globally and revenue grew from c. £30m to c.£100m
  • Stephanie Wallace, General Counsel at Metro Bank. Previously Head of Legal at RateSetter supporting the company through funding rounds totalling £40M and an exit to Metro Bank.
