What’s In A Name? Titles for In-House Attorneys

Posted by Momentum Search Partners on Thu, Jul 25, 2013

What is important, however, is to choose one system and stick with it so that all titles within the department are consistent and related to one another in a uniform way. Candidates should consider a title as one of many factors in evaluating a potential job, but should not over-value a specific title.
