Deputy General Counsel, Natasha Maddock
Legal Area: Data Protection, Terms and Conditions
Requirement: Localise T&Cs, GDPR compliance
Experience Required: Ex-BigLaw
GBG first used Lexoo to urgently engage an ex-BigLaw lawyer in Australia to localise its terms and conditions. More recently, GBG used Lexoo to engage senior data protection lawyers in Germany to ensure supplier contracts are GDPR compliant, and in Australia to ensure contracts are compliant with the Australian Privacy Act.
In every case, Lexoo provided GBG multiple fixed fee quotes from experienced lawyers in less than 24 hours. These lawyers have left BigLaw and now work on a low-overhead model, including as legal consultants or in boutique firms. They offer the same high-quality advice but with greater flexibility and price transparency. They’re also no longer constrained by high billable hour targets and pride themselves on being extremely commercial.
