General corporate practice involves handling a wide range of legal issues for businesses.
I wanted a role where I would be making a direct impact on the business. I no longer wanted to be an associate constantly subjected to constraining the quality of my work under the bottom line of the billable hour. While I realize it's a necessary portion of legal work, I wanted to take my time, and devote myself to one client (my own company) in order to unlock my full potential as an attorney. The opportunity for such a General Counsel and hybrid Business Development role was ideal for me. I could be out in the market networking while doing meaningful legal work at the same time. Also, the due diligence and compliance industry was extremely alluring to me. So much so that I am now in the process of becoming a Certified Anti-money Laundering Specialist, as well as a Certified Fraud Examiner.
