I have hired outside attorney in the past to help with a specific task, such as helping draft letters.

like

There's a limit to what an outside attorney will do, because ultimately you can only be represented by one lawyer for a specific case issue, and also lawyers will not provide opinion/edit other lawyers' work. Hence compartmentalize the ask (e.g draft a letter that you need to provide, and then application can be by your employer retained firm).

Yes because Deloitte lawyers don’t really provide advice and coaching you need IMO

Same with PwC
