Owen joined AdvanceLaw after more than a decade advising large company general counsel on outside counsel management, productivity, and legal risk management. Owen most recently served as Principal Executive Advisor at CEB Leadership Council for Legal Executives, where he oversaw the client advisory team. Under Owen’s leadership, his team led in-house legal strategic planning exercises, process maturity evaluations, talent assessments, benchmarking projects, and advised on law department structure and risk management approaches for over 350 large corporations.
Prior to this, Owen was product manager, responsible for product development and go-to-market strategy. During Owen’s role as product manager, CEB undertook ground-breaking research to define a new, more effective approach for managing legal risk after finding that the majority of employees did not seek legal counsel when they should and considered the legal department a roadblock. Owen also pioneered new services for in-house litigation heads. Owen has published research studies on legal-business partnership, contract management, and records retention.
Earlier in his career, Owen advised leading financial institutions on customer segmentation, payment processing, and distribution strategy. Owen received his B.A. in International Economics from the University of Nottingham.
