Sterling Miller - Hilgers Graben: The Art of Embracing Opportunities

The role of the GC has come a long way since the days when everyone only wanted to work for big law firms.

GCs have now evolved into a more strategic and important role within organizations, where lawyers are doing more of the legal work and interacting with the business. 

For the role to continuously improve, lawyers must stay endlessly curious, evaluate what they’re doing and improve upon it, and learn how to delegate.

This week, we're joined by Sterling Miller, CEO and Senior Counsel at Hilgers Graben PLLC. Sterling’s diverse professional experience has enabled him to strategically adapt to each position, embrace change, and disrupt the legal department.

In this interview, we delve into what it takes for the GC to chart a more strategic path within their organization.
