InsideCounsel Magazine June 2014


From The Editor

  • Cleaning up corruption in the business

    The GC acts as that classic figurehead of the summer: the lifeguard. She watches the waves to make sure no sharks are looming and, if we are in trouble, she swims out to rescue us and bring us back from dangerous waters.

Inside Perspective

  • Labor & Employment Digest: June 2014
