In House


As companies seek to reduce their external costs, the opportunities to work in the buoyant in-house area of the legal profession are growing.

Roles for in-house lawyers vary considerably, generally focusing on wider business issues and calling on a broader skill set than traditional practice roles. Essentially, in-house lawyers are integral to a company’s commercial decision-making process and are expected to advise on commercial solutions whilst taking into consideration the legal position, exposure to risk and other relevant factors.

Working in house requires a detailed understanding of the company’s business, and with opportunities in industries ranging from food manufacturing to engineering, financial services and media, in-house can provide a fascinating career alternative – one in which time-recording and billing can become a thing of the past!
