Network webinar

In conversation with Erica Handling, former General Counsel EMEA at Blackrock


From 2015 to 2019 Erica Handling was General Counsel EMEA at Blackrock, the world’s largest asset management company, where she led a team of 60 Lawyers. Erica is now a Non-Executive Director for the Government’s legal department and an Executive Coach. In this virtual roundtable discussion she will reflect on her career as a whole as well as her time at Blackrock and taking the next steps towards a portfolio career. 

Chaired by Prini Pithouse, Deputy General Counsel and Company Secretary of Visa Europe, this session will explore the ever expanding role and remit of the modern general counsel and the inevitable pressure that brings – especially during this pandemic.

In this video conference, attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and steer the debate in order to cover the issues most important to them. These may include:

  • staff engagement
  • challenges around productivity and burnout
  • relations with the board and executive
  • the future of flexible working practices
