Cottage industry: part-time general counsel

Legal Week, Vol. 8, June 8, 2006, at 12 reports that David Hickson, former “head of legal” at Lastminute.com (See my post of March 22, 2006 that differentiates “general counsel” and “chief legal officer.”) has become a consultant at niche firm The Legal Desk. The Legal Desk is one of several legal service providers that offer experienced lawyers to serve companies that have no in-house legal function as de-facto general counsel (See my post of Nov. 27, 2005 about “outsourced” general counsel.).
