The In-House Counsel Success Guide: Key Strategies and Insights to Jumpstart Your In-House Counsel Career

Event Description

Congratulations! You just landed your dream job as in-house counsel for an amazing company. The job of an in-house lawyer (especially at hypergrowth organizations) is interesting, diverse, fast-paced, and not for the faint of heart.

 

Depending on your previous experience, you’ll likely have to address issues you’ve never addressed before – even if you’ve been a practicing lawyer for many years. You’re going to need to expand your expertise to find answers in areas with which you’re barely familiar. You may also become responsible for bringing in new hires and building your legal team from scratch. It sounds intimidating, but I promise you, this can be fun!

 

To make your in-house transition easier, join us on Thursday, May 5th, at 12pm ET, as Jessica Nguyen, Chief Legal Officer at Lexion and Joe Rossettie, General Counsel at Sendbird, will share lessons and practical advice from their first-hand experiences as in-house counsel to the general counsel positions they hold today, including:

 

– A 3-step checklist to serve as a success framework;

– Must-do early priorities for new in-house counsel on top of doing your day job;

– Specific advice on how to earn trust and build credibility with the business; and

– Real life stories of wins and lessons learned (so you won’t have to learn the hard way!)

 

Attendees will come away from the program with key tips, tricks, insights and strategies for success as in-house counsel.
