How do folks generally go about finding and vetting selecting specialists? Referrals and personal network? Google? Hire an Esquire? Haven’t yet figured out a methodical system to consistently yield good results.

What kind of specialist?

Most common recurring needs are trademark, patent, commercial agreements, data privacy, and immigration. Less frequently but still critically, need employment or business litigation. Also have trouble finding one-offs for things like drafting a custom credit card agreement, creating a nonprofit, or making a small change to a funds agreement.

My guess is the pay will be a 40% increase or better plus stock. Just wanted to share because except my wife I can’t really tell anybody.

I started a new job in a new area of law. Other than CLEs and outside counsel I regularly work with providing training, how can I learn this new practice area of law relatively quickly? This is a me deadline. My company is pretty great with my learning curve.

Does anyone else’s company do “secondments”? I was asked to “look into” this? Someone who is a non attorney executive had a great idea they could save money and have outside counsel “at their disposal” 24/7 and on-site? Is that how this works? I know we spend a lot of $ on outside counsel but I don’t see how one of them having an office on-site adds much value? Maybe it’s a good thing. I am supposed to “report back.” Are they a joint employee? I was asked to advise “what this will look like.”
