Steve and I are delighted to announce that we have a new addition to the corporate team – someone who is a major asset for the business, brings with him a huge skill set, experience and professionalism.
Nick Mallet is the new NJT Legal Counsel and will also sit on the newly created board.
We believe bringing Nick into the team is a major achievement for our business as it demonstrates the calibre of our growing team, more importantly it shows how seriously we take all legal matters within our business and industry.
Nick is someone who has an impeccable reputation in the legal sector, having previously represented the Law Society in Europe and being considered the top of his field in law.
He will be a great resource not just in legal matters but in the day to day running of what is becoming a huge organisation.
Having someone of Nick’s experience and stature will help the company enormously in the future, especially as we grow and expand.
Below is a snapshot of Nick’s resume:
I qualified as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England & Wales in 1979. I practised law full-time, mostly in London, until June 2011. My work has mostly concerned non-contentious commercial matters, including some high-profile clients and transactions. I am the most experienced lawyer in Europe dealing with the direct selling industry, and also have considerable experience of franchising. Most of my work has had an international element. I represented the Law Society in negotiations with the EU in Brussels aimed at codifying the contract law of the member states. I served as chair of the commercial law committee of the City of London Law Society for several years. I am a Freeman of the City of London.
We are sure you agree that this is a stellar appointment and is one of many others we are looking to attract to our ever growing business.
Paul & Steve
