Once upon a time in a land far, far away, coming into the fold as corporate in-house litigation counsel was a move to be treasured. Gone were the days of billable hours being sweeter than flowers, and you were now both counsel to your prestigious internal corporate client and a valued client to others. In this magical world, your family and friends once again recognized you other than from pictures and life was good.
With the advent of increasing corporate efficiency analysis and spend reduction targets in a non-revenue producing position, a new recipe for in-house litigation counsel is the evolving rule of the road. Litigation counsel transitioning to an in-house position are now required to possess a dramatically increased set of knowledge, responsibilities and skills bridging the gap between law and technology.
