Helping Hands

Like most law firm lawyers who go in-house, Marc Gary probably didn't miss time sheets, billable hours and rainmaking when he left Mayer Brown to join BellSouth's legal department in 2000. But as Gary settled into his new position as director of litigation for the Atlanta-based company, he did start to miss one thing about law firm life--working with his colleagues on pro-bono projects. Mayer Brown had an active committee that made it easy for the firm's lawyers to participate in a variety of pro-bono projects.

But BellSouth didn't have anything like that.
