From Courtroom to Boardroom: Teresa Wynn Roseborough '86
As general counsel for The Home Depot, the world’s largest home improvement retailer, Teresa Wynn Roseborough '86’s scope of practice is as broad and varied as the contents of a Home Depot store.
“Everything from Chinese corporate law to bankruptcy to vendor agreements to litigation to employment to environmental law ... it’s hard to imagine an area of law we don’t touch,” she says.
As a corporate lawyer based in Atlanta, she’s responsible for what happens after the litigation is over — whatever the outcome — and even trying to prevent the next case from ever getting as far as a courtroom.
“The opportunity to stay engaged with the same set of clients, to really get to know them, to impact how they think, to help reason through issues and be involved in developing strategy,” she says, “is just a great opportunity and a great way to practice law.”
