I just went from big law into pharma in-house and so far, I am loving the lifestyle change. That being said, I spent 5-6 years In big law paying off student loans, buying a house, starting an investment account. Its worth doing to put yourself in a comfortable place financially. But the difference between law firm life and in house is night and day. It’s the better lifestyle but, for me, it’s also the type of work, not having to bill hours, working with lots of non-lawyers that I am enjoying. But don’t forget to consider the pay cut!

Crossposted. Looking for advice. I’ve got 10+ years as an attorney and have been trying to go in house for over a year. I have a generalist background (although I’m primarily a litigator) and was a partner at an Amlaw 100 firm. I’ve had my resume reviewed and keep getting great feedback. Not getting many interviews and when I do, I’m not getting offers despite positive interviews. How do I differentiate myself? Should I get some sort of certification or specialty? This is getting depressing.

Does this group also have a non-compete which prevents you from working a second job should you need more money?

Tips to handle a non-legal boss that cuts you off relevant matters?

Entered to the company as its first in-house counsel

The legal issues were previously handled by the CFO with help of outside counsel. 1st year was hard because he was territorial about legal matters, but I reported directly to the board so it wasn't a true issue

2nd year: The CEO retires, and the new one decides to put me under the CFO in the organigram. Now I'm back to square one bc this guy cuts me off any relevant issue!

Esp so b/c I still get recruiter reach out for opportunities that better fit my profile.
