Adrian Moffatt describes himself as an entrepreneur, trapped in a lawyer’s body.

As General Counsel (Asia Pacific) at Ausco Modular, Adrian proves that an in-house lawyer’s value goes beyond their legal advice.

Adrian’s heavily involved in business development and his enthusiasm is evident when he speaks of how a simple conversation about women playing AFL turned into a multi-million dollar opportunity for his company, which he was able to lead.

Through booms and busts in the mining industry, the growth in modular classrooms for schools and the explosion in women’s elite sport, Adrian’s ability to connect people and opportunities has given him job satisfaction well beyond a traditional legal role.

“I think lawyers are often seen as roadblocks, as just negative people because we’re looking at the risk all the time.”

“We’re so fortunate that we have visibility across the whole organisation .. you can build relationships right down in the organisation.”

“You’ve got to know what the drivers of the business are, what the goals of the business are, how the business works.”
