In-House Interrogatory

pathFor in-house counsel, movin’ on up can be a problem.

General counsel in secure positions at companies sometimes have no clear path to rise. Legal departments are small and corporate counsel who have secure bosses could find themselves in a dead-end situation, according to an article in Corporate Counsel.

The article suggests in-house attorneys in this situation can lean on their business skills and move into the business side of the company, become an expert in the field by making speeches and writing or simply go back to law firm life.
