The Lawyer Magazine's in-house attitudes survey contains a wealth of interesting findings. As a consultant with 'newlaw' firm @halebury, one specialism of which is placing secondees in-house, I'm particularly interested in the results regarding secondees. In my experience secondees cover roles that an organisation is trying to recruit for and maternity leaves but increasingly we undertake major one-off projects which might previously have had to have been outsourced to expensive external big law firms.
