So why should you become a General Counsel?
Lifestyle - This is what attracts a lot of lawyers to work in-house. Control your life with predictable working hours, flexibility and achieve the work life balance you deserve.
Benefits' packages - Most lawyers receive benefits packages whether in-house or in private practice. However the most attractive packages are usually offered to in-house lawyers with a range of benefits that are not usually made available by law firms.
Variety - The role of an in-house lawyer is inherently varied and the exposure to a range of work is of great appeal to lawyers who may be disillusioned by private practice and the repetitive nature of the work they do.
Responsibility - As a General Counsel you will likely be working a lot closer to the decision makers and you will have the autonomy that many lawyers crave. The ability to make your own decisions is an opportunity more widely available in-house.
Job satisfaction - Whether you are a General Counsel, Legal Advisor or Legal Counsel, you will provide a key function to the organisation that results in job satisfaction.
See the results - Success stories from General Counsels speak of the benefits of seeing their legal work in a commercial way and contributing to the development of the company.
No timesheets - With a General Counsel role, you will generally not have to track billable hours and will not have the frustrations of time recordings.
As a specialist legal recruiter representing a wide range of organisations with their recruitment needs, whatever your specialist discipline, Pro-Legal can assist you with your move in-house to a General Counsel position.
