Everybody wants everything last week. It used to be that everyone wanted everything yesterday, but times have changed!
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 15, 2012
On Tuesday October 9th, 2012, Elizabeth Gordon, host of Burr & Forman’s Results Matter radio on Business RadioX®, was joined by Assistant General Counsel for Cox Communications and Winner of the Atlanta Business Chronicle ACC-GA’s Lifetime Achievement Award to talk about her career and the challenges and benefits of working in-house.
When discussing the transition from working at a firm to going in-house, Kennedy advised that attorneys have to “give up being a specialist” and enjoy “knowing a little bit about a lot”. She added that the way for in-house counsel to be successful in their jobs is to to have a “can-do” attitude and learn the business jargon of their particular industry. Kennedy also talked about how technology has increased the pace of business and law dramatically as compared to even 10 years ago and joked, “Everybody wants everything last week. It used to be that everyone wanted everything yesterday, but times have changed!”
In talking about working with outside counsel, Kennedy advised bringing them in as early possible when you know a project will warrant it. She explained that though the cost of using outside counsel is a barrier to bringing them in early, firms are now beginning to come up with new pricing models (other than hourly) in order to facilitate these relationships.
