Secondment Experience

While at Barack Ferrazzano, Bob had the benefit of a secondment to a large firm client. In that role, he served as the client’s general counsel, which provided Bob a unique perspective into the needs and pressures facing in-house counsel and the business units they advise. As a result, he understands how important it is to quickly respond to questions with practical and easily understandable answers, and how to work as a business partner to find creative solutions to problems.
