In this podcast, Brian chats with Walker Lockhart, former Amazon Legal Council, Nordstrom Director of Product, and current EVP of a new startup.

Tune in as Walker and Brian discuss how the metrics-driven culture of Amazon helped shape the innovative and technology-embracing culture in its legal department, and why you should be looking at your legal department as more of a businesses unit, rather than how they are traditionally looked upon.
