General Counsel, In-House Counsel, Quote of the Day, Technology

Working In-House Is A Lot Like The Mafia

Being general counsel is like being Tom Hagen in the Godfather — you’re a Consigliere.

— A “top lawyer at a New York City startup,” explaining the value of creative lawyering to getting a new business off the ground. Daniel Doktori of WilmerHale spoke to a number of GCs about when startups should hire a lawyer and how to make the most of their new counsel when they do. Just always remember that Tommy isn’t a wartime consigliere.
