Amar Sarwal is a triple threat: scary smart, super talented, and downright lovable. He is unsurpassed at pulling legal leaders together to accomplish anything they put their minds to. As the vice president and chief strategist of the Association for Corporate Counsel, Amar likes to tell people that he has the best job in the world. But as anyone in ACC will tell you, ACC and its members are lucky to have one of the best legal thinkers driving their initiatives and teams forward. From advocacy on professional regulation, to helping law department leaders re-invent their future, to improving client value via the ACC Value Challenge, Amar makes himself responsible for transforming corporate legal practice, one challenge at a time.
