We are proud to announce that our in-house legal team made up of Barbara Radon, Head of legal, and Iole Neviani, Legal Manager have once again made it onto the prestigious The Legal 500: GC Powerlist Germany, 2019. This is an enormous achievement and we congratulate them. In David Burgress’s, Publishing Director at The Legal 500, own words:
“For over 30 years, The Legal 500 has been analyzing the capabilities of law firms across the world. The GC Powerlist is the latest publication from The Legal 500, turning its attention to the in-house function, and recognizing those corporate counsels who are driving the legal business forward. The latest edition is the GC Powerlist: Germany, which identifies an array of the most influential and innovative in-house counsel working in the region…”Our head of legal, Barbara Radon spearheads zeotap’s in-house legal initiative. Read more on her development here: After five years in private practice with Noerr in Poland and Germany, Barbara Radon moved in-house with fintech startup Spotcap before joining zeotap in 2018. She possesses academic knowledge through her status as an LLM graduate and Ph.D. candidate as well as an extensive language experience. ‘I speak Polish, English, German, Italian, Spanish and some Russian’, she explains, which she utilizes in her legal role. She has drafted and negotiated software-as-a-service agreements both in her previous and current roles – a fintech company and an adtech company – and lists this work alongside her adaptation towards the new legal realities provided by GDPR and other regulatory developments as among her best achievements.
“I believe that the legal department now gets involved in a wider range of topics and at an earlier stage, which increases the efficiency for the company as a whole”, Radon says of her legal department. “For example, we finalized the templates for zeotap’s various products, which smooths out the work of sales and commercial teams. In addition, we coordinate preparing patent applications with our inventors and external patent attorneys, which makes the process more effective”. Radon is keen to support the lawyers around her: “I think that the most important for any legal team is that the legal team functions very well as a whole. Therefore, I would like to acknowledge here my team member, Iole Neviani, who is one of the most brilliant lawyers I have ever met. She is a great specialist, has excellent legal knowledge, perfect soft-skills and a great understanding of the product and business needs”.
