After serving as the general counsel at Streck Inc. for nearly two years, Ryan Wilkins reported to a human resources meeting earlier this month and was told that his position at the biotech firm had been “eliminated—effective immediately.” 

Wilkins wrote about his June 4 dismissal from the La Vista, Nebraska-based company in a LinkedIn post on Sunday. He said in an interview Monday that he was Streck’s only in-house lawyer and the company has decided to rely on outside law firms going forward.
