Anybody has similar encounter?
Lol. Appears that you have a limited understanding of the role of an in-house lawyer…

In-house counsel generally look after the legal affairs of the entire business. Is a company’s business litigating and avoiding litigation? I’m gonna answer that for you to say probably not. A large portion of the work relates to reviewing commercial contracts (relevant to the business) and keeping the day-to-day legal affairs in order (e.g. drafting resolutions, checking older contracts, etc.). Litigation (even preventing litigation) is a small portion of that. Would your 6PQE of disputes experience help you in these tasks? If yes, then you’re not selling yourself well. If no, then you have your answer…
