    Nice article! I am printing it out and will use it as a guideline for preparing for my next interview.

    As an attorney recruiter for some 17 years specializing in in house placements, I agree with most all of your post. Since I have always specialized in placing intellectual property attorneys, primarily PTO registered types, I have found that many do have an ability to generate capital through writing patents that are not only impenetrable but become very marketable through licensing efforts. Those who specialize in licensing, at least on an out licensing basis as opposed to just writing them are in essence sales people who generate capital for the company. I find many candidates for in house positions get very excited about the opportunity to grow the business as opposed to lining the pockets of the guy constantly quizzing them on how many hours they have billed so far for the month. All in all a very useful article for any attorney wanting to make the transition from law firm to in house.
