Any advice from former litigators on how to find an in house role that will allow my 7 years of litigation experience to be useful? I ideally want to be in a role that oversees and manages outside litigation but open minded to other roles and would love advice and any input that you can share. Many thanks in advance!

Litigator here (6 years) landed in house role on the transactional/regulatory team. My goal was to manage litigation too but gotta start somewhere! I highlighed all the skills I gained from litigation and how they would be transferable to the role. Check out corporate counsel roles.

First, those in-house litigation oversight and management roles exist. I’m in one and I’ve seen many postings for them lately.

Second, a lit background can be helpful in contract focused roles. You’ve seen all the ways the contract can go wrong and you can avoid them!

Maybe it’s not the case in your market, but I assure you I’ve seen many as of late. As many as corporate roles? No. But many nonetheless.
