The Corporate Counsel Survival Guide by William E. Kruse

Reviewed by Kati Sanford Goodner

In this quick-witted user’s manual for in-house attorneys and attorneys seeking to make the transition from private practice to in-house counsel, William Kruse, former TIPS Section chair and vice president, law and counsel, for Gallup, Inc., both entertains and educates. After discovering that his own transition to an in-house counsel position was not nearly as informed a decision as it could have been, Mr. Kruse decided to write a book to help other attorneys. The resulting guide highlights some of the biggest challenges associated with the transition and addresses important distinctions between private practice and serving as corporate counsel. The book pulls from Mr. Kruse’s own personal examples and war stories gleaned from fellow in-house counsel to prepare and advise those seeking to follow his path to corporate counsel.
