I’d appreciate if anyone has any tips for an upcoming in house litigation interview. What are some good questions that are important to ask? For litigators who were at firms, why did you go in-house and what was the most challenging aspect of going in house? Thank you!

What practice area?

I would ask what kind of tasks are typical for the position. And of course, follow up with how you have transferable skills for those required tasks. Good luck!

I would ask about the scope of the role. Does it involve lots of management of outside litigation counsel? What is the level of authority expected for making litigation decisions? How are matters staffed?

Hi Everyone, I’m currently actively interviewing/searching for CoS positions and encountered a situation that requires finessing. When COVID lockdown started I took a job that was entry level & was underemployed bc at the time I wanted to prevent professional atrophy while I waited to see how things would play out. Now, it appears as though I’m being passed over by recruiters bc my last position does not reflect the 10+yrs of senior administrative management experience I have. Any suggestions?
