After 24 years practicing product liability and toxic tort law, John C. Childs moved to Atlanta in April 2005 to an in-house job with the Georgia-Pacific legal department. Attracted by the challenge of taking on the company's defense in a number of product liability cases, he became the company's first chief litigation counsel, responsible for developing and designing an in-house defense to asbestos litigation. The verdict? "We had a good year last year," Childs says. "We won six and hung two."
