Our Marquee Players section is our chance to introduce you to a small-firm lawyer, an inside counsel or another innovator in the law who is exceptionally talented, innovative or otherwise phenomenal.
We’ll conduct intimate interviews of these folks to learn about their career paths – including all the interesting frolics and detours - to find out what makes them tick, and understand why they are so darn good at what they do.
We’re profiling small-firm lawyers because there are simply not many outlets that do so. The glossy national legal media publications largely ignore small-firm lawyers and in-house counsel, who grind away without public relations professions and slick media profiles. We think these folks are blazing trails and should get the same attention as the big firm lawyers doing the same thing. Marquee Players is our chance to tell you about these legal phenoms who are small but mighty.
Candidly (hey, it’s in our name!), we have an ulterior motive. We hope to convince you to engage with these lawyers, especially the small-firm lawyers, before you turn elsewhere for counsel. Think about it: a simple conversation may open your eyes to a great lawyer, possessing top-notch skills, who can do the work for your organization in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
You’ll impress your boss! You’ll win the case!* You’ll fit into your skinny jeans!** You’ll run a 4.2 40.***
For the inside counsel, we may sometimes post these interviews anonymously, if our subjects request it. We want our interviewees to feel free to tell us what really happens inside their companies and how they really pick their outside counsel. We want to know why they fire their outside counsel too. At the same time, this isn’t a gossip blog, and we have no desire to embarrass anyone. We simply want the truth (we can handle the truth).
Plus, we’re looking to highlight inside counsel at startups too, not just big companies. It’s a chance to tell the world about your background and give a shout out to the wonderful things your company does. Disrupt away, just let us profile the lawyers you use to aid the effort.
You are welcome to suggest possible Marquee Players to us. Just contact us to let us know about someone great you know. If you are an inside counsel and are interested, let us know that as well.
