The course is live on Thursday, September 15, at the Embassy Suites Chicago Downtown Lakefront, 511 N. Columbus Drive in Chicago. The class starts at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 5:30 p.m.

As internal pressures mount on legal departments to provide legal services efficiently and cost-effectively, many corporate counsel are looking to traditional project management principals to provide value to internal clients. This highly interactive conference will allow participants to learn how to reduce the risks and surprises of litigation as well as increase the predictability of costs by applying the techniques of project management.

The experience faculty of in-house counsel, outside counsel and consultants will rely on collaborative problem solving and case studies to demonstrate how to effectively manage the “iron triangle” – scope, time, costs – of litigation projects to achieve the best results.

Among the speakers are Kenneth J. Yerkes, Barnes & Thornburg LLP; Heidi Maher, Attorney and Technologist, EMC; Deb Bernhard, Perkins Coie; and Jamie Berry, Capstone Advisory Group.
