Review
"As a CEO, I rely on my Office of General Counsel not just for legal advice but also to play a critical role in developing and executing our business strategy. Authors Dubey and Kripalani have artfully described how a CEO can properly understand, appreciate and leverage the full talent and perspective of their GC."
--Alex Sun, President & CEO, Mitchell International


"The Generalist Counsel provides insightful perspective on the evolution, challenges, and opportunities of inside counsel's role, as well as invaluable advice for lawyers and law students who would construct careers in the corporation. The authors' analyses of elements for success in the role should guide developing lawyers and law school curricula. This book offers a rare chance for informed individual and collective reflection on the personality, knowledge, talents, and skills that lead to a lawyer's synergistic fit inside the corporation."
--Marjorie Corman Aaron, Professor of Practice and Director, Center for Practice at the University of Cincinnati College of Law
