I’ve got a quick question. Does companies allow people to work on another part-time projects (freelancing), during their employment? Most companies have restricted their employees to be involved in such side gigs, right?

Any strong feelings against going in-house in a junior corporate counsel role? I am currently interviewing at Assurance IQ and Smartsheet, and I'm excited about them both.

Regretting moving in-house. I was an 8th year associate at a v10 biglaw firm but moved in house six months ago and am regretting it. The pay has been hard to stomach but the bigger concern is that the hours and work are not what I expected. Is it too late to go back to a firm since I was so senior when I left? Should I just stick it out a while longer and then find a new in house job? Appreciate any advice.

I just started in house as a second attorney in the entire global company, and first IP attorney in the US. This is my first in house position, I have 10+ YOE.

I’m thinking of setting up a standard email response asking to provide context methodically, like an intake form or something like that. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi Fish. Recently moved in-house to a newly public tech company. People are great, but the team is really understaffed. No paralegal or assistant- we are doing everything ourselves.
