For many lawyers, their first role as in-house counsel can present a number of new, unfamiliar challenges over and above the practice of law. Given that lawyers often start their careers at law firms, their first in-house role can be a significant transition, both in learning how to navigate the resources, organization and politics of their company and in learning to serve as true business partners and trusted advisors with an in depth understanding of the business. Learning best practices and practical tips for success in your role as in-house counsel is key to becoming an effective and valued member of your organization and in providing the highest level of service to your client.
