Mike Duff, Penske Truck Leasing senior vice president and general counsel, was the keynote speaker at today’s American Bar Association New Partner and In-House Counsel Conference, Young Lawyers Division, in Philadelphia.
Duff highlighted the dynamics of becoming an in-house attorney, and provided keys to success for hiring, and working with, outside counsel.
“I’ve always felt my obligation as a lawyer is to give back to my profession,” Duff noted. “I was very happy to speak at today’s conference and share with new in-house lawyers and new law firm partners some of my experiences during my more than 26 years as a practicing attorney.”
Duff joined Penske in 1991, and has served as an attorney at a law firm. He is chair of the governmental relations committee for the Truck Renting and Leasing Association, and is the second vice president of the Delaware Valley Area Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel.
He is also active in the local community, serving on the board of the United Way of Berks County. Duff and his wife Diane served as co-chairs of the United Way’s successful 2011 campaign.
