HBR: "The Rise of the General Counsel."
GE's former general counsel Ben Heineman, Jr. has this one right. See his "The Rise of the General Counsel" appearing last week at Harvard Business Review. The in-house community is smarter and stronger than ever.

But that has changed. And it's good news for great outside corporate lawyers.
