Why do we recommend “in-house” lawyer services?
For a small business, retaining staff attorneys is very expensive, especially if they have work experience in a law firm before. Normally, staff attorneys expect a remuneration higher than the average salaries of the professional lawyers in law firms. Because comparing to lawyers work in a law firm, their career is with less expectations and freedom, although their pay is very stable.
Law school graduates have an average expectation for the salary, but it is difficult to keep them, because in-house lawyer experience is under most circumstances a step stone for their future career. They are also very inexperienced, sometimes need many years before they can handle difficult issues. They can handle some simple issues, but this will leave them little accomplishment which is also one of the reasons for their resignation. For law school graduates, most of us have a lawyer dream, which is far more exciting, challenging than in-house lawyers.
In addition, in the event of emergency or crisis, professional lawyers in law firms are always a better option than staff attorneys, because we do deal with all kinds of disputes and issues all the time.
Big companies can afford a legal team of their own, but in case of litigations professional lawyers from law firms are more confident in court. The best advice for the big companies is to maintain a legal team and engage an external lawyer(s) as consultant. The in-house lawyers know employer and the details of the dispute better than external lawyers, but external lawyers are more professional in handling crisis and litigations, and are more professional in court hearing techniques.

In the event of cross province disputes, we can coordinate lawyers from the branch office to cooperate with our lawyers, in order to make us more confident in the local court culture. But we will not simply hand our cases to the branch office lawyers or other local lawyers, and then do nothing. Instead, we will appoint a lawyer from our team to participate in and decide the strategies of the case.
