I’m interested to know opinions on which service is better for in-house counsel, Practical Law or Lexis Nexis? Or another option that I might be unaware of? Im an in-house generalist at a medium sized, service based company and handle a range of matters including general business, contracts, employment/international employment, IP, privacy, and technology. I want to be able to access templates, practice guides, and checklists.

I really like Practical Law. Having come in-house from Big Law, I say it’s like having a junior associate help me with my workload when it comes to drafting documents.

Look hard at Lexis. We use Lexis Advance and it is incredibly broad! We love it.

Thank you!!

We use Bloomberg. Also there’s an in-house bowl if you want to reach more IHC.

Practical Law is decent for templates but Bloomberg is better for the more business-oriented research, like stats and other pure data.

I love Practical Law. I’m sure you’ve come across this, but I believe they offer a free trial if you want to check it out.

Practical Law. Also Google. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I received an offer for 30k more than I’m making now at Deloitte for Cyber Risk.. what’s the main reason Advisory is a bad choice? Is a Senior Consultant role in this practice a bad place to be from a career growth perspective? I don’t understand the practice structure and am unsure if I’m being misled. I also don’t want to be doing only security assessments, if that’s what the work is like. 😅

What are the benefits of working at a small law firm (about 10 attorneys) as opposed to a midsize firm. What is the difference in the amount of work/ billable hours, benefits (health insurance and PTO), opening doors for future career opportunities, etc. I have an interview at a small law firm, which is not what I ideally wanted, but I am considering it because of the COVID uncertainties. I appreciate any kind of guidance.

Anyone else having the hard internal decision of returning to work in office? I LOVE my group and the people but I LOVE the flexibility of working at home - I have high billables so no commute gives me extra personal time or work time as needed. There are some firms offering a flex WFH/WFO and some fully remote positions. I am afraid I can leave and end up with an awful group/culture but also afraid for my mental health of going back to office 100% full time M-Th. Anyone else in the same boat?

What to do if I suspect I’ve been given a different pto policy from my coworkers? I accrue 10 hours of pto at the end of each month of my employment. This was a very fine detail hidden until the end of my negotiation process. I’m regretting not pushing back on it. Do you know of others at your company that have different policies than you do? I’m a start up full of highly experienced people (I’m the least) so I imagine it’s more likely to happen at a smaller firm?

Biden Administration Tipping Point? I’m starting to think the wheels are coming loose on the Biden administration train. The Delta variant is still eating up the news cycle and the idiotic back and forth on masks and Fauci’s nefarious plot/imminent sainthood are keeping most of the debate away from the simmering underlying issues. My guess is that a year from now we’ll be looking at mid terms no longer defined by a pandemic response but by inflation, deficit, crime and immigration.
