Volume: 7 Issue: 1
It seems that it is almost every day now that my morning struggle in to work on the Victoria line is rewarded with the news that some clever over - achieving, under - washed boffin has already shifted the paradigm within which I am supposed to run the in-house legal practice. Months after it was first implemented (and usually when the technology is on the verge of becoming obsolete) I find out about the new hegemony, more often than not when a large amount of money is involved, and it dawns on a bright spark to scream for legal. Only then do I have the time to retrospectively consider the regulatory impact of that new process/technology/policy. This, even with the benefit of hindsight, is no easy job.
