Neal Pekala, Hyatt Director-Legal Services: The Law Department As A Business Enabler by Chuki Obiyo
Neal Pekala, Director-Legal Services at Hyatt Hotels Corporation, joined Chuki Obiyo of Morae Global to discuss practical legal and business insights on the law department's mission to protect and enable the business.
"The good news is that we have a mandate. We have to get things done. Legal is not just here to say the answer is 'No'," says Neal. One interesting recommendation that he provides is all about how to build up goodwill with your internal business partners. Neal also shares his career story of going beyond what is expected in a given role in order to achieve at a high level and move your career forward within the legal services function.
Listen to Neal and Chuki discuss this progress and explore practical insights on what law departments need to get right— the right people, process, systems, and a business partner-approved scorecard?
