Corporate counsels are lawyers who work directly for a business or company. They may also be known as in-house counselors. Rather than working for a variety of clients, they devote all their talents and energy to their employer.
They provide legal protection and services to a company as a whole in addition to its employees. Corporate counsels typically work in their employer’s main office but also regularly travel to take part in meetings, trials, depositions and other legal proceedings.
