General Counsel Jobs
Many attorneys who spend some of their years in government jobs or in a law firm sometimes decide afterwards to move to in-house careers. As they grow in their careers, they can decide to take on more responsibilities and challenges, such as leading the entire legal organization. If such challenges cannot be found in their jobs, they may go outside to look for these challenges.

For someone who needs a General Counsel Job, he has to have proper judgment and leadership. To be a general counsel, it is important to have broad knowledge about the legal field. To be able to become a general counsel, it is important to have the knowledge in executive compensation, employment and labor, compliance, dispute and risk management, litigation, and corporate government with securities and corporate legal matters. In case you want to be a general counsel, you need to pursue the opportunities and get the experience that is needed in the legal area. If you are an in-house attorney, you are responsible for strengthening your team and developing opportunities for your successor.

The general counsel has to report to the CEO or to the president of the company. The responsibility of the counsel is to lead tactical legal and corporate strategic initiative. The general counsel can provide the senior management with effective advice for the company implementation and strategies that manage the legal functioning of the company. The general counsel will be involved in the complex business transaction and in negotiating the business contract.

Other areas of work include the development and the definition of the company's program, procedures and policies. They can get involved in company guidance and counsel about the company's legal matters as well as any implications. The counsel has to serve as a key legal and lawyer advisor when it comes to the business transactions, divestitures and acquisitions.

He also has to judge the merits for the major court cases that are filed on the behalf of the company or against the company. He has to work with the appropriate executives in order to define the strategies and to approve the settlements whenever it is necessary. He has to assume responsibility for making sure that his company is being compliant with the regulations and the laws of the area they operate. He is the one who needs to evaluate the legal needs of the company.
