The main work of the corporate attorneys will be in the works that will be dealing with issues of taxes, acquisitions, mergers, amalgamations, and rights of the employees. In short, a corporate attorney's work is to ensure that the commercial transactions are going on in legal way. For a corporate attorney, there are other types of practices, but not all the attorneys can do the same type of job. Some of them will provide their advice on the legal issue to the corporations. In this area of providing legal advice to the corporations, the corporate attorney's work starts from the formation of the corporation and it goes on throughout the life of that particular business and until and unless the business is dissolved.

(the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
