Most in-house lawyers used to be in private practice, where their career paths tended to be fairly predictable. For in-house lawyers, however, the future journey from that first step in-house can be totally unclear.

In this episode, Karen’s guests Anna Wyse (General Counsel, ReAssure Group) and Angela Yotov (General Counsel, Close Brothers) reflect on the twists and turns of their careers and the lessons they have for other in-housers. The discussion covers networking, internal secondments, mentoring, and thinking outside the box about your next steps.

“If you take a risk…what you learn on that journey can be irreplaceable.”
