Ever feel like your company or other departments do not respect the legal team or the work you do? Normally, I'm ok ignoring and getting shit on by other departments and having managers (younger than me and with less experience and terrible business sense) circumventing the department policies or harassing me to get stuff done outside our process. Lately, just feeling more "over" it and getting more and more angry. What are some of your coping strategies?

There are several things to unpack here. If people are circumventing your process then let the managers handle. You can only control so much - don’t let it ruin your day. People should also not be disrespecting your work or the process. Again that’s for management. If you are management then there is a company problem to address. If people are pretending they are better than you, I like to be humble and be open to their suggestions. If they are assholes, ignore them.

I recently started a new job in house. Previously I’ve been at two other companies in house prior. I am in my 8th year of practice and have only done L&E during all previous jobs. I love L&E and was told this new role would be L&E.

Flash forward to starting- the role is 0% L&E and they have me doing contracts, data privacy, IP….I never would’ve taken the role if I would’ve known this is the actual area of law they were going to give me work in but I hate my new job and don’t know what to do.
