Sarah Hine started her career as a lawyer in BigLaw firms, but it wasn’t until she moved across to the in-house arm of such practices that she truly found what she was looking for.

In this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Dentons general counsel Sarah Hine as she outlines what it means to be a GC for a BigLaw firm, the hurdles that in-house teams in private practice have to overcome, both in the age of coronavirus and more generally, and the pros and cons of working with and for other lawyers.

Elsewhere, the pair talks about the critical role that BigLaw GCs have had over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, and how such professionals will be essential to the success and function of legal practices as the market turns its attention to a post-pandemic world.
