In-House Counsel hired as an independent contractor - Seeking clarification on indemnity insurance
Hi I am an attorney barred in New York, and I recently started as in-house counsel for tech start up. They have hired me as an independent contractor and I am seeking clarification as to whether this can be done and also what the appropriate indemnity insurance should be for me. I hope someone can assist. Thanks! Christina Chelliah
I would have to see the employment agreement/contract. Also, if you have a job description with duties, responsibilities, in-office/hybrid/WFH requirements, reporting requirements, etc that would help.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.
I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
