    "Job stability" is not a "perk...of full-time employment". Let‘s not kid ourselves. Further, to hang on to in-house careers, many long-time in-house lawyers are willing to live just about anywhere, or engage in crazy weekly commutes. I --have been an in-house contract lawyer for 16 years, before "optics" and "gig economy" were in conversation. The dynamics just suit me--few meetings, relative freedom, no annual reviews. The relationships have invariably lasted many years. What‘s not to like? More people would work this way if not afraid of going solo or having to pay for health and malpractice insurance, minor considerations in my opinion.
