Mollie Tregillis
Executive Director, MinterEllison Consulting, Melbourne
I lead MinterEllison’s Legal Optimisation consultancy practice, which leverages MinterEllison’s award winning Legal Operations team to support clients in optimising their inhouse legal function to improve operational efficiency, develop high performing teams and provide strategic client service. This practice works with clients to achieve best practice across six domains: strategy, delivery, team, resources, technology and data.

With a depth of Legal Operations experience, I am a people person with a passion for building strong relationships and influencing for change. As a ‘recovering’ lawyer, I aim to bring an empathetic yet strategic focus to all my engagements and take pride in my low jargon, human centred approach.

I am a respected member of the Legal Operations industry and maintain strong relationships within the industry, including through memberships of CLOC and ALTA. I have a passion for mentoring and training 'up and coming' Legal Operations talent and supporting them to find their dream job just as I have.

I have an ongoing focus on further education and my certifications include Prince2, AgilePM, Lean Six Sigma, Design Thinking and Service Design.
