Whether managing outside counsel on a transactional basis or as an ongoing aspect of your mandate, it can be either seamless and rewarding or challenging, and at times, frustrating.  Improving the in-house counsel and outside counsel relationship and the ability to work well together has a beneficial impact on results, efficiency and therefore stress levels.

In this session, our panellists will explore the following areas:
 
  • Setting up the relationship for success
  • Managing outside counsel to maximize value for your organization
  • Giving effective direction and feedback
  • Using outside counsel as a sounding board
