Role of In-House Counsel in Transnational Operations

Philip Kessack, Senior Counsel, Americas Business Lines, AECOM, USA

A fundamental role of in-house legal counsel is to assist the operations teams in identifying, assessing and tailoring their procedures to ensure compliance with applicable requirements and to address the risks associated with the business and legal environment in which the company’s products are to be sold or services are to be performed. This role is especially critical for transnational companies who are looking to sell products or perform services in a foreign jurisdiction (Host Countries). Failure to invest the necessary time, money and effort to identify and understand the unique conditions and requirements impacting such work in a given Host Country not only jeopardizes the profitability of the company, but can expose the company to substantial civil and criminal penalties for failure to comply with the applicable requirements.

He has over twenty years of in-house counsel experience with global billion dollar consulting engineering firms as well as two years of experience with a major law firm and several years of experience at the director level in state government.
