Marc Gilman and Cheree Johnson had to rely on outside counsel and their peer groups to learn about different legal fields when they took up the general counsel role. Areas such as employment, securities and corporate governance did not come naturally to them.
In any assignment to outside counsel, problems and challenges may arise. The important thing is that those issues are spotted by your outside counsel and brought to your attention quickly along with possible solutions.
Sheppard Mullin partner Jonathan Meyer will be the nominee for DHS general counsel, and Paul Hastings partner Robert Silvers was picked for under secretary for strategy, policy and plans.
