Ricardo Tosto Discusses the Differences Between Being In-House Counsel and Working at a Law Firm

While in the past, most lawyers in Brazil were in private practice in a law firm, more and more attorneys work in legal departments of medium-sized and large corporations and other organizations. Most students undertake their internship at a law firm, and this has a number of advantages, including preparing students for the substantial workload in the profession click here.

Starting out in a law firm and then branching out into industry is not uncommon, as many lawyers crave a chance for growth and an opportunity to enhance their business skills. Large corporations usually have an in-house dispute resolution department and use law firms only for extremely complex cases. Many in-house lawyers serve as project managers for outside firms hired by company and advise managers and other staff on legal matters.

Oftentimes, working in-house requires greater business savvy than being an associate at a law firm. Many young lawyers opt to earn an MBA to supplement their legal knowledge with the business skills they need to succeed in the private sector. While formal coursework in business is a definite advantage, the daily grind is also an excellent teacher, especially when it comes to working with people. Working at a law firm requires you to understand lawyers, but a business environment often includes a wider cross-section of educational backgrounds.

Desiree Perez is Significant in Development of Tidal

Many people in the social world know Desiree as someone who is a strong negotiator. That is why she has been good in business, and many individuals who have worked with her have become successful in their business. Many people have sought her services because of her hard work and dedication. A good example is Jay-Z who owns a company called Tidal. Desiree has worked with Sean Carter for years, and through all those years they have had a good working relationship.

 

Reputation

 

Desiree has characteristics of an entrepreneur and knows all it takes for a business to thrive. It is the reason why Tidal is now doing well and competing against other giants in the music streaming business such as Sony and Spotify. Her reputation comes from the many years of experience working in leadership positions and managing activities. She owns a company and therefore has excellent managerial skills. She has also collaborated with other top artists such as Rihanna, helping them in negotiation for deals. Desiree is also reputable for the success of Beyoncé’s album, Lemonade. With that reputation, Jay-Z knew that the tough lady would take the company to places.

 

Good Working Relationship

 

Desiree has been working with Jay-Z for many years, and because of her hard work, Jay-Z has achieved a lot of things in the business world. Juan Perez marries her, and together they run another company owned by Jay-Z called Roc Nation Sports. That good working relationship is what has enabled her and the hip-hop star to achieve great things.

“Zombie Houses” Go On the Market

Portland, OR has long been known for keeping things weird. History has shown that sentiment to even be adopted as an unofficial motto for the city, with eccentricity seemingly becoming the lifeblood that keeps the bustling metropolis ticking. In April, a set of unique houses with even more unique names will go up for auction. These houses, long neglected by society and left barren by the gentrification of North East Portland, are dwellings that can be purchased with the settlement of the liens that have inevitably been put on them. These dwellings are called “zombie houses”, and they are about to rise again.

 

Despite the entertaining label, zombie houses are far from the thrill ride that TV and movies would have one believe. The reality is far more depressing, far more likely to suck the soul out of a formerly optimistic individual. These zombie homes are simply unmanned ships, without owners and without anyone to perform even the most basic of upkeep. When left unoccupied for a long enough time, these shells of former homes can turn into hotbeds of crime and delinquency. Neighborhoods that contain such houses frequently clock in complaint after complaint to the Portland Police, creating a reputation that precedes the neighborhood in a decidedly negative way.

 

This auction is the first step to eliminating the presence of ghost houses altogether. While this is widely recognized as a risky and momentous task, the City of Portland remains confident that a continued run of seizures and auctions will ensure that every house goes to a competent home-buyer. To the highest bidder will go the spoils of a cheap house in a comfy, North East neighborhood. Bidding is expected to be a heated and rapid-fire affair, so wits are necessary.

 

The Milk’s Gone Bad In Honolulu

When one thinks about Hawaii, specifically Honolulu, HI, one would feel entitled to assume that anything edible would burst with vibrant, home-grown flavors. These lush taste sensations depict freshness, a quality that local dairy producer Meadow Gold boasts with abandon. Unfortunately, it would seem that not all is well in the land of milk and honey-flavored juice products. In a move that shocked and worried dairy enthusiasts across the island chain, Meadow Gold Dairy was ordered to stop producing 2% reduced fat milk by the DOH amid claims that Coliform bacteria had shown up in sample levels that far exceeded the acceptable percentages.

 

Coliform bacteria is used as a measuring stick for levels of sanitation in food and beverages. This hardy bacteria is commonly found thriving and swarming in the feces of mammals and other warm-blooded animals. Excessive presence of this bacteria means an immediate threat to the quality of food presented, and the exceedingly high levels found in Meadow Gold’s 2& reduced fat milk came as a shock to many longtime customers. Meadow Gold’s program manager Peter Oshiro wanted to make it excessively clear that this was not a public health issue, simply a quality control issue. According to Oshiro, there would be no product recall of any kind.

 

What does this mean for the future of Meadow Gold’s fine line of dairy products? If the management is to be believed, there is only the mildest of immediate cause for concern and virtually no cause for long-term concern. The fact that there will be no recall is a reassuring fact, but residents should still be on high alert when consuming the Meadow Gold products in question. Only time will tell whether or not this issue is worth a full recall of related products.

 

Mayor Under Fire in Fresno

The bustling urban metropolis of Fresno, CA, became the scene of controversy and protest on February 14th. Lee Brand, the occasionally-maligned mayor of Fresno, simply intended to host the Fresno Chamber of Commerce and give a speech to a rapidly gathering crowd of businessmen. Instead, he found himself face to face with an extremely vocal crowd of protesters. Voices rang throughout the streets of downtown Fresno in protest of Brand, and his recent quote to the local news that Fresno was not a “sanctuary city” by any stretch of the imagination.

 

Shannon Kurtz is the name of the incensed citizen that organized the Tuesday protest with vindictive glee. Shouting traditional protester chants through a megaphone, Kurtz led a tight-knight, tenacious group of protesters in their extremely vocal effort to force the mayor to reassess his stance on immigration. The gathered businessmen, some of whom were due to be sworn in to the Chamber of Commerce that day, were forced to endure the valiant chanting of the assembled protest group, which lasted throughout the entire duration of the meeting.

 

Though the group eventually dispersed peacefully, Mayor Brand felt the eventual, eminent need to rebut his tenacious detractors. Speaking frankly to the assembly of somewhat distracted business figures, Brand attempted to further elaborate on the fateful statement that he gave to the Fresno Bee. Likening himself to “the captain of The Titanic”, struggling in vain to navigate between two particularly nasty, jagged blocks of ice, Brand clarified by stating that he was simply denying Fresno’s official label as a “sanctuary city”. Brand’s supposed aim, it seemed, was to avoid losing federal funding while reminding the citizens that the city of Fresno is not under obligation to follow federal immigration rulings should they displease citizenry.

 

Workers at the Broken Oroville Dam Spillway Executing a Complex 7-Day Plan While the Weather Holds

The City of Oroville, California, with its population of about 18,000 is battling the consequences of an infrastructure failure of the Oroville Dam’s emergency spillway. However, with the weather forecast promising seven to ten continuous days of sunny weather, the workers at the Oroville Dam are furiously executing a plan they hope will ease the situation.

 

The three immediate objectives are to restore conditions around the Hyatt Power Plant in order to resume operations, lift the emergency evacuation warning for the people who live in areas below the dam, and release water into the Feather River from the entire Oroville complex, which involves a series of dams.

 

The Oroville River Reservoir is now down to a record low of 838 feet and the first step in the plan was accomplished when they reduced the flow from the Oroville Dam onto the emergency spillway to zero.

 

When the mid section of the emergency spillway gave way, rock and debris washed down and accumulated in the Thermolito Diversion Pool below the dam, causing water to backup in this area. Because the water level in this Pool is now unacceptably high, the Hyatt Power Plant had to be shut down.

 

By removing the debris in the Pool, engineers calculate that the water level in this area with fall below the power plant’s turbine level, where is should be, and the plant will be able to be safely put back into operation.

 

Step two of the plan involves floating barges and excavators working furiously on three sides of the rock and debris to clean it out of the Thermolito Diversion Pool. Some of this excess water that will be released will be diverted to the Feather River to keep the fish and ecosystems alive.

 

Around the clock monitoring of the emergency spillway area is being conducted with government drones, helicopters, engineers and emergency personnel. Remaining on schedule while no precipitation is forecasted is critical to the success of this operation.

 

If successful, the power lines that were disconnected because they were in the way of the broken emergency spillway will be reconnected in order to get electricity from the Hyatt Power Plant to area residents. In addition, the situation will be considered manageable, even with the broken spillway, and the evacuation warning will be cancelled.
