Dark Side of Going In House
Weighing an offer to go in house? Rees Morrison picks up on a report by BCG Attorney Search, The 'Dark Side' of Going In House, which offers five reasons to just say no:
- It is extremely difficult to get another law firm job once you have gone in house.
- The overwhelming majority of attorneys do not reap an economic windfall when they go in house.
- It is very difficult to move to another in-house job once you have gone in house.
- Your legal skills are likely to deteriorate once you go in house.
- You may have to work as hard in house as you did in a law firm.
Going in house is not all darkness, the BCG report says, to which Morrison adds:
"To these rays of light I would add that you can believe in what your client is doing more than in a law firm and you neither have to market -- in the same way that law firm partners have to bring in business -- nor do you have to track time."
