Corporate Counsel

Job description

Positions can range from entry level to senior management.

Corporate/in-house counsel are generally lawyers who are within a company's legal department and take care of its legal affairs.

In some instances, corporate counsel, in-house counsel and general counsel are used interchangeably, but here, corporate counsel is used as an overarching term for all lawyers within a corporate legal department, while general counsel refers to the head of the department.

Candidates must have a juris doctor (JD) and excellent analytical, communication, diplomatic, research and writing skills.

Typical duties of a corporate counsel

  • Preparing, reviewing and negotiating company contracts, requests for proposals and other legal documents
  • Consulting with management, commercial advisors, tax experts, accountants and marketing staff
  • Negotiating and drafting contractual agreements, such as real estate leases, and advising on employment matters
