It’s an exciting time to work as an in-house lawyer. But if that’s your goal, how do you build the right skills? When is it the right time to leave your law firm? What are the keys to developing relationships with company leaders?

In the final podcast of our GC Speak series, reporter Caroline Spiezio asked eight veteran GCs to share their advice for navigating in-house careers.

You’ll hear from the former general counsel of Apple (Dan Cooperman); Starbucks (Paula Boggs); Boehringer Ingelheim (Marla Persky); Delta Airlines (Greg Riggs); Baxter Health (Paul Williams); Intel (Doug Melamed); AIG (Stasia Kelly); and Allstate (Michele Coleman Mayes).
