EXTREMELY GENERAL COUNSEL – Working in-house is kind of rough right now, but hey, if nothing else, it’s nice to be needed. As Heather Nevitt writes in the latest edition of our Law.com Barometer newsletter, the pandemic’s massive upending of business operations, and implementation of new compliance requirements, has cemented the need for a general counsel to be an agile and innovative business driver.
