In-house, from A to Z

The things we do in-house.

Last week I spoke at a conference in New Orleans sponsored by the local chapter and Loyola University law school. I spoke first thing in the morning about attorney-client privilege issues for in-house counsel, but I stayed for the whole day.

The content was great, but what really struck me was the amazingly broad range of topics. After my ethics talk. we moved on the OSHA, then to ERISA, a little on litigation, negotiating contracts. IP agreements, professionalism, and software agreements. The list of issues seemed huge, but then I realized, I dealt with most of those issues every week when I worked as general counsel. From what I see on the discussion boards here, so do many members.

How many hats do you wear? I would love to hear how you balance these issues, ands some of the stories about the fringe topics you deal with.
