    Butterworths In-House Lawyers Handbook is the first and only text to bring together all the practical guidance, precedents, expert commentary and key source material for the in-house law department.

    In-house lawyers in all types of institutions will benefit from the insights Ian Jones’ commentary provides. Butterworths In-House Lawyers Handbook covers all the key planks of the internal legal advisors’ role, from managing a legal team to handling the procurement process.

    In today's world, in-house counsel in businesses and the public sector are expected to have a thorough understanding of the aims and activities of their institution, and relate that understanding to the advice they give their employer.
