Deloitte Legal has announced the appointment of Peggy Pauwels as a new partner in its Legal Management Consulting (LMC) team, bringing over 25 years of experience as a lawyer and commercial contract specialist to the firm.
In her new role, Pauwels will focus on the consumer and TMT industries within Deloitte Legal’s LMC business unit and will also lead on the LMC team’s talent management programme as it continues its “rapid” expansion.
Previously, Pauwels was the European head of commercial contract management at Visa, and she has also previously held legal and business transformation roles with Capita and BT.
Jack Diggle, global lead partner for Deloitte’s LMC practice, said: “Peggy’s strong focus on transformation means she brings a unique set of skills and experiences that bridge the legal and commercial world within the contract lifecycle.”
Pauwels added: “Now is an exciting time to be working with consumer and TMT businesses, both industries having rapidly adapted for changing consumer expectations and upscaled for greater reliance as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I am pleased to be able to expand Deloitte Legal’s services to these industries, assist them in embedding contract life cycle management within their commercial operations as they further transition into future business models and tackle the legal and contracting considerations that significant change warrants.”
Andrew Lilley, partner and consumer lead for Deloitte Legal, said: “Combining our broad consumer business with Deloitte Legal’s specialist legal knowledge and technology offerings means we are able to bring together Deloitte’s cross-firm expertise and service clients across all sectors.”
