Richard Conway is Deputy Group General Counsel at Coca-Cola Amatil, an ASX listed beverages company, where he has worked for over four years. Prior to that, Richard was a M&A lawyer at Herbert Smith Freehills in Sydney and Moscow.
Like many leaders of in-house legal teams, Richard has faced the challenges involved in meeting the needs of a large, complex and high-paced business whilst at the same time trying to ensure that the in-house team does more than just survive. After a few years of trial and error, the Coca-Cola Amatil legal team is now a high-performing, award-winning and happy team that’s driving positive changes in its business.
Richard is an advocate of thinking about the work of an in-house legal team just like any business: who are you customers, what do they want and how do you deliver effectively?”
