LOD Appoint Inaugural General Counsel

Lawyers On Demand, have announced their Australian Legal Director Jamie Prell is stepping into a global role as LOD’s inaugural General Counsel and Company Secretary.

Prell, who is a founding Director of predecessor firm AdventBalance, has over 30 years’ experience as a corporate and commercial lawyer, including 18 years as a Partner at what is now King & Wood Mallesons. He is very highly regarded for mergers and acquisitions, commercial and governance work.

Ken Jagger, Global COO said “We continue to explore growth opportunities through geographical expansion and the provision of additional services to our clients. As we continue to expand the business, the regulatory and legal complexity has increased and the need for a full time internal General Counsel has become evident.  Jamie’s background as an M&A Partner with Mallesons and his deep knowledge of our business and the global legal industry makes him the perfect choice for this role.”

Prell said “I am delighted to have the opportunity to make a contribution to the business at the global level and appreciate the confidence shown in me.   LOD now has offices in 5 countries, with over 600 lawyers and consultants across the globe working for clients in numerous jurisdictions.  With ever increasing legal complexity the time is right to have a dedicated General Counsel. I am excited by the challenges as LOD continues to grow.”

With both a global and regional focus, Jamie will concentrate on such things as regulatory and compliance issues across all of LOD’s jurisdictions, M&A opportunities and other strategic initiatives.  Regionally, Jamie will continue to support the Australian lawyers as Legal Director.
