I believe an LLM from a good university would assist in certain in-house roles, but it is definitely not a pre-requisite.

It was a good to have for me... and tbh, i didn't take my LLM because i thought it would improve my chances at a job. I did it to take a break from practice and before moving in-house. I had already gotten offers for in-house positions prior to taking my LLM - but i wanted to take a break and travel a little before moving, so made the decision not to go in-house immediately.
To the OP, happy to answer more of your questions if you have any.

I can only speak about transactional practice areas. Iíve spoken to practitioners. I can tell you that the answer is a resounding no. Much of transactional practice isnít about law anyway, so additional legal knowledge in the form of the LLM isnít going to help you. Transactional practice areas require logic and commercial acumen - your LLB and formal education should have equipped you with the former, and you can pick up the latter with experience in practice.

So, from a transactional practice viewpoint, all the usefulness LLM is an expensive sabbatical. Nothing much more.
