    I believe it’s wrong to insinuate that lawyers who work in-house are not in practice.

    I agree, not merely because I’m currently in-house, but because that is the position. Legal practice may be in a firm or lawyers or as in-house counsel i.e. being a SOLICITOR.

    The requirement of being engaged in-house, oftentimes, is that one must have been duly called to the Nigerian Bar. As called, one may practice either as a solicitor or as an advocate.

    Yes, Bryan. Oftentimes you hear people ask, ‘are you practicing or you’re in-house’? I think they need to be properly guided.

    Yeah, in-house lawyers are in practice.
