In-house attorneys face many challenges during tough economic times. Practitioners are required to meet the legal needs of the company with shrinking legal budgets and resources while at the same time dealing with a revolving door of new players at the senior executive, C-suite and board levels; turn-around CEOs; management consultants; new executives and new board members. A distinguished general counsel panel will advise participants on how to leverage resources to focus on higher priority tasks and legal obligations, determine when to reduce and how to cope with fewer staff attorneys, and how to create value-based services with outside counsel through alternative fee arrangements, requests for proposal and other methods to control expenditures while preserving high-quality legal services.
