House Counsel Managing Attorney Resume

A house counsel managing attorney resume is written by a person with suitable experience and excellent knowledge of the field of corporate law and structure.

An in-house counsel attorney is a person who is a part of a company's staff and so is on the payroll of that company which pays him/ her to deal with its day to day legal matters of concern. His job is to take care of all the legal issues concerning the company and advance the smooth growth of the company by protecting it from various legal road blocks.

There are, in corporate law structure, two levels of such posts- the senior in-house counsel attorney and the staff legal attorney. The former includes such positions as the General Counsel (GC), who leads the legal department in its workings.

He basically advises the company's management on all the important legal procedures and makes sure that all the legal formalities are in place. He works in close quarters with the company's CEO and is one of the most important employee of the company. He supervise the other legal staff under him. This supporting staff handles, under his leadership, all the legal matters and litigations made by or against the company by the third party.

The other level of legal staff (the junior staff) is known as the staff legal attorney whose job is to research over matters and provide all the case details to the senior staff. They generally do not handle the cases themselves but only supplies their seniors with the case data. This level of job is occupied by law freshers who don't have enough experience to represent a company's case directly in the court of law.

While writing this kind of resume to apply for a post in this legal field, there are certain rules that need to be bore in mind by the writers. These are as follows:

  • Keep simplicity intact - when writing a resume, always keep this in mind that the reader is not going to award you nay bonus points for the complexity of the language used in the resume. You should use simple words in English diction- the ones that are easily understood by anyone.

  • Make it short - There is no point in writing a lengthy and heavy resume that runs on for ever and ever. A reader will always prefer a short and crisp resume with the relevant details.

  • Divide it into sections - There should be separate sections in your resume for carrying different details as to work experience, education, etc.
