Faure has been a senior lawyer inside global giants at times of existential change and challenge:
• Ernst & Young - Global General Counsel when it was implicated in the $60Bn Lehman Brothers collapse, the Madoff fraud, and an Iran nuclear embargo breach, all successfully resolved. Faure became EY Global Leader of Legal Services in 2011, leading EY’s legal advisory services for performance improvement of law firms and legal departments.
