Are there any litigators in this group who left big law (or mid-sized law) to litigate in-house at an insurance company? If so, are you/have you been happy with your decision?

I moved from mid-size to in-house for insurance and loved it. All the experience without billable hours. I’ve had multiple trials since the move, and I’ve gotten to learn a lot. Would recommend.

Thanks!

I did and I love it! The client-attorney relationship is much friendlier, I have a lot more say in the course of litigation, and a large improvement on quality of life.

A successful senior software engineering career (15 years+), I took a significant amount of time out due to burnout and caring responsibilities.

Is going in-house all that its cracked up to be??? E.g., less money but less stress/more predictable schedule. Or is the utopian vision of an in-house position just a facade?? Thinking of going in-house from big law lit. Fully understand there are stressors in every job and no one company is exactly like another. Just looking for general info of how in-house (at major company) relates to big law (V25).
