What do you do when you start a job as an in-house attorney for the first time and there are no other lawyers at your company?
Many lawyers go in-house after practicing law for decades. While they come equipped with knowledge of the law, a general counsel position has its own set of rules and requirements. Often, these attorneys are the only lawyers in the building and have few outlets for advice.
Corporate Counsel asked general counsels how they seek mentorship. Some seek advice in general counsel online forums, others pair up in formal programs with other in-house counsel and some just call other in-house attorneys they are acquainted with on the phone.
So, here’s our question for you:
Where do you seek advice and mentorship in your job as a general counsel?
