In this episode of Lessons I Learned in Law, Scott Brown speaks to Rachael Carolan.

Rachael is currently General Counsel and Director of Policy at London Based technology company what3words. Rachael was the company's first lawyer and has been responsible for setting up and growing the legal function. She qualified at Herbert Smith Freehills and moved in-house on qualification to Accenture and also spent time at 2 of London’s hottest startups, GoCardless and Deliveroo.

Rachael shares the three lessons she has learned in law including:

  • Create your own path, rather than trying to follow a traditional one.
  • It’s possible to add value as an in-house legal counsel, beyond the traditional legal role.
  • In a B2C company, try to make legal part of the brand identity.
