So why should you become an in-house lawyer?

Lifestyle - This is what attracts a lot of lawyers to work in-house. Control your life with predictable working hours, flexibility and achieve the work life balance you deserve.

Benefits' packages - Most lawyers receive benefits packages whether in-house or in private practice. However the most attractive packages are usually offered to in-house lawyers with a range of benefits that are not usually made available by law firms.

Variety - The role of an in-house lawyer is inherently varied and the exposure to a range of work is of great appeal to lawyers who may be disillusioned by private practice and the repetitive nature of the work they do.

Responsibility - As an in-house lawyer you will likely be working a lot closer to the decision makers and you will have the autonomy that many lawyers crave. The ability to make your own decisions is an opportunity more widely available in-house.

Job satisfaction - Whether you are a General Counsel, Legal Advisor or Legal Counsel, you will provide a key function to the organisation that results in job satisfaction.

See the results - Success stories from in-house lawyers speak of the benefits of seeing their legal work in a commercial way and contributing to the development of the company.

No timesheets - In-house lawyers generally do not have to track billable hours and do not have the frustrations of time recordings.

As a specialist legal recruiter representing a wide range of organisations with their recruitment needs, whatever your specialist discipline, Pro-Legal can assist you with your move in-house.
