My boss just recommended that I check out the Ten Things You Need to Know as In-House Counsel blog, written by Sterling Miller who is a General Counsel with over 25 years in-house experience. I am not from the West Coast, so I don’t use “awesome” lightly, and this blog is “awesome”.
So far my favorite post (which I immediately shared with my own team) was his “Ten Things: Making Legal the Department of Yes“. My team has, without making a list and without knowing that such a list existed, consciously made an effort to implement each of those recommendations. We started this two years ago and have largely succeed, but it is very important to go back, remind ourselves what we are doing and refresh our efforts.
