Majors by business unit and minors by substantive area of excellence (Ascential Software)

The eight inside lawyers of Ascential Software, according to a summary in top of mind, Vol. 4, at 13, combine geographic coverage and substantive coverage. Each one serves as the general lawyer for a business unit or region – you can think of it as their “major” – and also as the responsible lawyer for an area of excellence, such as data privacy and protection, securities law, and export compliance – their “minor.”

This combination of structural elements makes sense: breadth of coverage for a business unit and depth of knowledge for the entire company.
