We thought we would keep things light and give you all some fun reading as you ease into the first work day of 2013.
The National Law Journal has an article on Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Inc.’s new general counsel. The Delaware-based brewery company decided to bring an attorney in-house in August.
The company, known for its informal workplace, dubbed the new GC “off-centered general counsel” for her official title. Some employees were worried that bringing in an attorney would deflate the company’s laid-back atmosphere. But, with its relaxed approach to the the company’s new addition, the staff (as well as the beer) is anything but flat, they say.
So here’s our question for you:
What do you do in your legal department to keep things light? While every workplace is not as casual as the brewery, what sorts of things do you do to stay laid back in the serious world of law and business?
