Founder & Fractional GC, lawesomeGC
Pia Thompson is the founder of lawesomeGC, which fills a gap in the marketplace for small to mid-size business to have best-in-class legal & compliance in order to scale and avoid leakage of resources. Another way to say it - lawesomeGC provides a cost-effective solution for companies (and their boards) that need a bazooka on a slingshot budget. The ROI for a fractional GC can be greater than with a full-time GC. A fractional GC is a member of the exec team. There is no difference between a fractional GC and their full-time counterpart except that the fractional GC is part-time and works for more than one company at a time. So we're clear - a fractional GC is not a law firm nor a solo-practitioner. Fractional GC's provide a company with legal, strategic, and leadership skills. This gets time consuming and not particularly relevant "stuff" off the desk of other executives - including responsibility for compliance & legal. The fractional GC is Your Company Lawyer.
Pia has practiced in Big Law and spent the last 10+ years as General Counsel for public, PE owned, VC backed, and debt financed companies. Pia has dealt directly with DOJ, CFPB, SEC, CFTC, FTC, OCC, FDIC, state attorneys general and licensing authorities. She is a certified Governance, Risk, & Compliance Professional (GRCP) and a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/US). Ms. Thompson is an attorney licensed by the State of Illinois.
UDAAP is exciting, treacherous, problematic, amorphous, and she is excited to be joining the discussion.
