New Practical Law In-house resource, Practice note, Defining role titles for in-house lawyers and legal department personnel
Practice note, Defining role titles for in-house lawyers and legal department personnel, emphasises that job titles are important to all lawyers, but especially to in-house lawyers who may come to an in-house role with the expectation of the same established ladder of traditional titles as in private practice, or who are seeking to ensure their title adequately reflects their personal experience and talents.
Some of the key issues discussed in this note include:
- The importance of selecting appropriate titles for legal department employees.
- Key considerations for determining legal department titles, including restrictions under professional rules.
- The responsibilities of in-house lawyers and other legal department employees.
- Common titles for in-house lawyers and other legal department employees.
