In House Counsel Jobs
In-house Counsel Jobs are for lawyers who work as attorneys for the company. The in-house lawyer like other employees of the company will be working towards business welfare. The in-house lawyer will counsel the company in the professional way and the attorney has to decide about the rules and the regulation of the company in accordance of local law.

In the corporate law department, the attorneys fall in the two groups: the senior counsel and the general counsel who work like the attorneys to oversight of the business. The senior attorney is in charge of supervising the staff at the low level and he can advise the company about a certain area of the law and in supporting the work of the company, in the coordination for the outside counsel on the litigation matters. The junior staffs are associated with the senior attorney.

The in-house attorney is more than being a legal adviser for the corporation or any other entity. The in-house attorney can affect the full range of the decision made by the corporation. The counsel advice has a great impact for the decision making process that can have a legal implication of the legality of the business knowledge and strategy. The knowledge of the attorney will have a great impact for the legal interest of the company. The lawyers who work in the firm have only one client and it is the corporation. They do not have to represent any individual, principal officers or directors even if such people act in the administrative position of the corporation. The lawyer has to advance the interest of the company and not the interest of the individual who works in the company.

The corporate counsel can act like a conduit for the employer with the company that is outside of the law firms. The work is confined with the housekeeping and other routine matters of the corporate company. The rising cost of the legal services had seen the expansion of the corporate counsel responsibility. Many companies have now a large number of lawyers to rival the law firms in both the qualifications and sizes especially because the legal matters are now handled in-house.

The in-house attorney may affect the range of the corporate law. The practice areas may involve the anti-trust law, the corporate securities, the international trade, the government contracts and the real estate business. The duties of in-house counsel can have an importance for the ability of the company to manage legal risks.
