On being a “barefoot” lawyer rethinking corporate structures
Season: 1 / Episode: 12
In this episode, Neha talks with Patrick Andrews, a lawyer, facilitator, and entrepreneur with over 30 years of experience in advising businesses and not-for-profits on their corporate structures and governance. Patrick goes by the description of “barefoot” lawyer, which to him means someone who makes law accessible, meets people where they are, and is connected to the earth.
You know that quote from Joseph Campbell that goes “there is perhaps nothing worse than reaching the top of the ladder and discovering that you’re on the wrong wall”? Well, that’s what Patrick discovered in the course of his career and this conversation kicks off by unpacking that story and discovering what led him to find his purpose.
In addition, Patrick shares insights about the future of corporate structures and what it takes for organizations to make the shift towards structures that are more sustainable for their people and the planet. We found this conversation absolutely riveting and we hope you enjoy it, too.
