The Law Firm's Own General Counsel
Posted by Christine Hurt

I suppose that the old cliche about a lawyer who represents himself having a fool for a client is even more compelling when a law firm represents itself.  Generally when a law firm is sued for malpractice, the firm retains outside counsel.  However, what about the day to day problems that (hopefully) never become claims?  Who handles those?  Jeff Lipshaw (Legal Profession Blog) posts today about a new article by Elizabeth Chambliss (a former professor of mine) on SSRN:  The Professionalization of Law Firm In-House Counsel.  The article notes the increase in professional, full-time general counsel appointed from outside the firm and analyzes the implications on norms and ethical rules of a network of law firm in-house counsel.
