Making the decision to pursue an in-house counsel position can be a daunting experience, in part because in-house positions are so different from working in a firm and can vary by company and industry. This is a must-read book for any lawyer considering an in-house position, offering valuable advice for a wide audience, from law students and recent law school graduates to current in-house counsel and those who are contemplating going in-house or considering a career change. Written by William E. Kruse, Regulatory Compliance Officer and in-house legal counsel at Gallup, The Corporate Counsel Survival Guide offers helpful insights into the unique aspects of serving as in-house counsel and provides a foundation for anyone who wants to learn more about in-house counsel life. But beyond the book's wise counsel, the author's witty and clever words make his advice fun to read and easy to follow. As he puts it in the Preface, this is a book that passes "on valuable advice for new in-house counsel that won't bore anyone to death in the process." Topics cover the essentials for anyone starting or considering an in-house counsel position, including: - How to get your bearings during your first hundred days- Managing an internal crisis, from not overreacting to understanding the critical importance of the signs that are being sent- Getting work done and how to use time wisely- Avoiding land mines- The business of law in a business- Working with others in your company and how to make arguments to convince people of what's in their best legal interest- Surviving a crisis, adapting to change, relocation, training, mentoring, and other challenges of corporate life

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a must-read book for any CEO or attorney or compliance officer transitioning to an in-house position. It is filled with sage advice and practical vignettes that will keep you from making the common mistakes repeated by many who transition from outside counsel the unchartered waters of the corporate world. It is light and lively, not filled with a lot of technical or legal jargon, but loaded with excellent advice. I highly recommend this author as one who has already learned the lessons of transition to in-house and now shares some of those valuable lessons with you."--Robert F. Meunier, Esq., CEO and President, Debarment Solutions Institute, LLC
"Bill Kruse's book is exactly what both in-house and outside counsel need. It not only reveals the unvarnished reality and challenges that in-house face on a daily basis, but it does so entertainingly, with humorous flair. The Corporate Counsel Survival Guide also confirms, to outside counsel, that no in-house counsel actually wants to hire a lawyer. Rather, they want outside counsel who understands the organization's industry, business, and goals. In other words, inside counsel wants to engage outside counsel as business partners who will help them achieve the organization's goals."--Robert T. Rhoad, Sheppard Mullin, Washington, DC
