Michelle Banks is currently a senior advisor at BarkerGilmore LLC where she specializes in providing executive coaching to corporate general counsel and their successors in development. Michelle draws on her international legal experience as the former general counsel of Gap and trusted outside counsel to various Latin American and Asian companies in providing guidance to her clients these days. She noted “You have to speak the language of business when you want to be a strong part of the team and be an effective in-house lawyer.” She also shared how she set and was able to accomplish her goal of retiring from practice by the age of 50. I was so impressed by her natural ability to move from one meaningful opportunity to the next and so thankful she shared her valuable insight.
