Corporate Attorney Job Description

A corporate attorney serves the corporation employing them. Working with only one client makes for predictable work: you know who your client is, and in fact you are on the same team and care about their business.Unlike criminal law or working with a firm in which a range of clients come and go, working as a corporate lawyer has a different feel than working solo or working in a firm. You may work alone or with another lawyer if the corporation is small, but large corporations hire a set of lawyers, each with their own specialty. Banks, insurance companies, retail stores, manufacturing companies, and most large businesses hire such lawyers. This form of employment often offers a more predictable work schedule than working at firm, where hours can be long and unpaid.
