Some general counsel with scattered lawyer sites travel frequently

The general counsel of a large corporation may have to travel quite frequently for transactions and other business purposes. But what if that top lawyer has responsibility for lawyers who are posted in distant offices?

According to the Bisnow on Business E-Letter, May 2007, Marriott International has in-house attorneys in Washington, DC; and Orlando, Florida as well as in London, Zürich, Dubai, Mumbai, Singapore, Hong Kong and Beijing. The peripatetic general counsel of that company makes it a point to travel at least once a year to each of these legal offices. Buy a passport extension!
