Four more legal departments and their assemblage of posts (Amex, Bank of America, Barclays, HSBC, and Pfizer)
One tiny game I have been playing has been to search this blog for references to large law departments when they submit data for my General Counsel Metrics benchmark survey. Recently, Bank of America did so I played the pied piper (See my post of April 13, 2007: Bank of America has some 2,000 subsidiaries; April 13, 2007: William Mostyn as Deputy General Counsel; July 29, 2007: Burton Award winner; Jan. 30, 2009: reductions in force after acquisition of Merrill Lynch; April 18, 2009: lawyers in merged law departments must reapply for jobs; Nov. 13, 2009: criticism of the reporting lines of general counsel; and Feb. 2, 2010: former general counsel on list of most ethical.).
A previous post ferreted out all the posts for eight legal departments (See my post of July 13, 2009: Cisco, DuPont, FMC, GE, McDonalds, Microsoft, UTC and Wal-Mart with 169 internal references and six metaposts.)
More recently I have done the same for American Express, Barclays, HSBC, and Pfizer (See my post of July 30, 2010: American Express; April 21, 2010: Barclays; Jan. 21, 2010: HSBC Bank; and May 26, 2010: Pfizer.).
