Description

Inside Counsel – Practices, Strategies, and Insights by Marc I. Steinberg and Stephen B. Yeager – the first book of its kind – provides a wide-ranging account of in-house law practice. The book serves as a valuable resource for many audiences – law students, in-house counsel, those who are contemplating going in-house, and even outside lawyers. Relying on their collective decades of practical and academic experience, the authors offer key insights into such important topics as successful strategies that in-house counsel can implement, interfacing with “internal clients,” working with outside counsel, the focus on “preventative” law, the skill sets that are valued by corporate counsel, and the steps that an outside lawyer or recent graduate can take to obtain an in-house position.

In the book’s Foreword, Veta T. Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC), welcomes this needed resource – “The cumulative experience and wealth of knowledge that Professors Steinberg and Yeager brought to the table as co-authors have proven invaluable, and resulted in a wonderful collaboration. I am confident that this new book will quickly become a “go-to” reference for all those who seek a more in-depth understanding of the in-house practice of law.”
