Why is there such huge demand for transaction in house bodie

Postby Desert Fox » Thu Feb 26, 2015 2:02 pm

How is that most trans biglaw people can get a spot in house. Why are there so many in house jobs. Wouldn't that mean that there are like 10 in house jobs for every current biglaw trans bro? What am i mnissing here.

There probably are. Biglaw is only hiring like 6k people a year and probably 2/3 of those are lit

Doesn't seem surprising. 1) A lot of day-to-day operations in large businesses involve corporate law issues somehow (e.g. contract drafting, compliance) vs. the relative rarity of lawsuits. 2) Because suits are relatively exceptional occurrences for most corps, it's easier (and more effective) to outsource lit representation.

Also, the majority of corporate legal work--governance, contract drafting, regulatory compliance, HR--doesn't require the use of costly outside firms and can be done more cheaply (and, often, better) by in-house counsel.
