"How a GC Protected a Company During COVID-19: An Innovative Organizational Structure"

July 28, 2020
ACC Docket

While Flex is known for its innovation in tech and manufacturing services, their legal team creates dynamic solutions in its own regard. When the COVID-19 pandemic first began presenting vulnerabilities to multinational manufacturing companies, Flex Chief Executive Officer Revathi Advaithi took innovative and preventative steps allowing Flex the company to successfully respond. One particular step involved Flex General Counsel Scott Offer leading several departments in addition to the legal department (namely, marketing and communications, brand protection, security, government relations, sustainability, and legal).

Flex VP of Global Litigation & Disputes Melissa Zujkowski partnered with Dykema Executive Board Member Mike Wippler to author the ACC Docket article, "How a GC Protected a Company During COVID-19: An Innovative Organizational Structure," which discusses Advaithi’s guiding principles for Flex’s department changes, and how combining departments benefited Flex’s business units and allowed it to implement a coordinated, effective, and efficient response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
