In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, the head of legal, Australia and New Zealand, of Dell Technologies shares insights into the world of in-house.
After a few years in private practice, Kristin Brown knew that she wanted to be more involved the business side of things from start to finish, so she headed in-house.
After working at several companies, including a stint at a telecommunications company in Bahrain in the Middle East, she landed her role at Dell Technologies.
Ms Brown shares with our host, Lawyers Weekly journalist Lara Bullock, the pros and cons of working in-house and going beyond just legal work.
While in-house roles can provide good work-life balance, they aren’t necessarily easier than working in private practice, according to Ms Brown.
However, in-house teams are often more interested in the work that is produced than where or how it’s done, and so are attracting more junior lawyers who expect a flexible work culture.
