Legal, Company Secretarial, Governance
Leaders in legal, company secretarial and governance functions play a pivotal role in maintaining the ethics and integrity of organisations – particularly in times of change and uncertainty, as they seek to assist the business in achieving its commercial and strategic objectives, whilst minimising any risks and ensuring adherence to the law, and meeting “best practice” in governance processes.
Omera Partners’ consultants have extensive experience in appointing General Counsel/Chief Legal Officer, Company Secretary/Board secretary, and senior Governance professionals and their direct reports.
We understand that leadership appointments within the legal and company secretarial, governance, arenas, are critical appointments to anchoring the entire business and ensuring it is well positioned to achieve its business objectives and continued success. With an increased focus on strategic decision making, risk mitigation, crisis management, meeting regulatory and compliance obligations, and governance processes, sourcing and retaining talented executives and leaders is critical.
Organisations are looking for commercially minded, strategic executives and leaders with the skills and experience to navigate the complexities of an everchanging commercial landscape in a digital era, and the technology disruption, scrutiny and pressures which can arise. In particular, opportunities have increased for highly skilled company secretarial and governance professionals, and many companies have made “Chief Governance Officer” or equivalent appointments, as businesses look to shore up frameworks and processes, meet legislative and regulatory obligations, and navigate through a moving growth trajectory.
At Omera Partners, we take the time to understand our client’s business, their strategic priorities and build a trusted advisor relationship which is built on the foundations of understanding not just the role, but the culture and organisation as a whole.
We work across all industries in the corporate sector and have extensive experience working for ASX listed and private companies, as well as the public sector, including government departments and statutory authorities. We hold a strong track record of appointing leaders, followed by building their teams and often entire functions.
With extensive professional networks across the market, we pride ourselves on our long-standing relationships, uniquely enabling us to identify highly credentialled leaders, understand the nuances of each industry and drive robust business outcomes for our clients. During a search, our Partners work to provide in-depth assessments and analysis of individual strengths and match these with team dynamics, intended business outcomes and succession planning activities.
