In-house: Risks and rewards
If you type in the phrase 'time management' to the internet search engine Google you will get 748,000 entries. I would imagine 747, 999 of these would be helpful in some way to in-house teams who, in a very harsh economic environment, are facing the severest of demands on their time.
Over the past five years investment banks have found it relatively easy to recruit top quality lawyers. Cynics might say that this has owed as much to the negatives of private practice as to the perceived positives of working in-house, but tales of high bonus payments, shorter working hours and, perhaps more nobly, better quality of work and closer proximity to the business, have resulted in the migration of some of the City’s best and brightest to investment banks.
