ICYMI: Law.com Interview – What does it take to be the first lawyer for a company?

Are you curious to know the characteristics that make a successful and happy first in-house attorney hire for a company?

If yes, check out Law.com’s interview of our Chief Legal Officer, Jessica Nguyen, who is the first in-house attorney hire at Lexion and was the first in-house attorney for two other hyper growth technology companies (Avalara and PayScale). It’s OK if being the first in-house attorney for a company isn’t right for you and doesn’t sound appealing – there are law school graduates that make great lawyers at law firms or large corporations, trial lawyers (e.g., prosecutors or public defenders), law professors, politicians, or lawyers that don’t practice law at all anymore (e.g., many become business executives or leadership coaches). Read the interview to see if the life of a startup lawyer speaks to you. Interview available here.

At Lexion, we’re happy to have Jessica on board to serve as the champion of the customer (she understands and lives our customer’s paint points and use case), and partner with our team to build and shape a “product that legal teams actually need and love to use to solve real business pain points.”

Schedule a demo with us to see if Lexion will help solve your pain points.
