Management consultants for the legal profession

LEGALTEAM Solutions was created by Philippe Melot (†2019) in 2009. Philippe Melot developed his consulting activity starting in 1998, after a career as a General Counsel, member of the Paris Bar, and former President of the Cercle Montesquieu (association of General Counsel). Active members of professional associations such as the AFJE (association of French in-house lawyers) and the Cercle Montesquieu, Philippe Melot and Sharon Golec taught legal management at HEC (Master in Law and International Management). Philippe Melot was a driving force behind the creation of the General Counsel Executive Master at Sciences Po.
