Hey, any corporate lawyer / in-house counsel / corporate counsel from India in this bowl? What do you think about the biggest challenge of moving from a law firm role to in-house role or vise versa?

I would think the shift from in-house to law firm is much difficult than vice versa. The challenge according to me is the different skill sets required for both. At a law firm, you are an entrepreneur as against an executioner when one is working inhouse. I say this with very limited knowledge of inhouse roles. So, I'm happy to stand corrected.


The internal processes. They're a pain.

My old employer asked me if I wanted to come back to the company as a manager. The pay will likely be much better and the position holds more responsibility than I’ve had before, so overall it would be a step up. The issue is I left the company because of an abusive manager who constantly put me down and made me feel like I wasn’t doing anything right. If I come back I’d be working under her again. I’m torn because the opportunity is great but the stress was awful. Continued in comments…

I am deeply shocked and hurt for the kind of things she has spoken for me and for my family in front of everyone, I don’t want to live with her anymore, i am feel very low and lonely but i fear that they would drag my family to the court and imply fake FIR as they say and she said very clearly that she will not let me walk out of this marriage easily. They have trapped us by pretending like a very good family with values, and showed their true colours after the marriage. Please suggest

She and her family has threatened me and my family, that if things don’t fix between us then i will have to bear the consequences, they are rich and wealthy, they will implicate fake legal case against me and my family.
