The Corporate Counsel Show: The value of litigation experience for in-house teams

On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Laing O’Rourke corporate counsel Belinda Wong about her litigation background and experience to date, the upskilling she has done since moving over from BigLaw to an in-house role, her perception of litigation experience and how it has shaped her abilities as a lawyer, and how her skills have been transferrable to her new in-house role.

Ms Wong also outlines how perceived requisite skills may be evolving in the post-pandemic landscape, whether there’s an increased demand for litigators in-house, other trends she sees in the market, whether we will get to a point where litigators are preferred to transactional lawyers, and how best corporate counsel can acquire litigation skills to better support their businesses.
