Content
Now firmly ensconced as Goldman Sachs’ sole legal chief, having previously shared duties with long-time Goldman lawyer Greg Palms, Karen Patton Seymour is one of the most influential and powerful in-house lawyers in the US. The former Sullivan & Cromwell partner is tasked with overseeing the everyday legal function of a multinational financial services behemoth, while also contending with the legal ramifications of the bank’s relationship with Malaysian state-backed investment fund 1MDB, which is at the centre of a swirling political corruption scandal. Outside of her in-house role, Seymour also receives plaudits for her leadership in criminal justice and women’s issues, demonstrated by her role serving as a board member for the Vera Institute of Justice, and as an active advocate and mentor for women in leadership positions. Commentators report: “She is a truly outstanding lawyer in every respect. I can’t think of anyone else in the legal community that I’d want more – she has it all.”
