Cisco General Counsel, Senior Vice President and Secretary, Mark Chandler, has been named to The National Law Journal’s (NLJ) list of “The Decade’s Most Influential Lawyers.”

Chandler joins 39 other lawyers across key legal practices whose work the NLJ said “was so consequential that it helped to push the profession, an industry or a practice area substantially forward.”

Chandler is singled out for identifying changes to information technology that impact the world of legal services, and developing innovative methods to drive efficiency and collaboration between companies and their outside lawyers..  The NLJ describes him as “an outspoken champion of cutting costs before cutting costs was cool.”
