The MSBA's Corporate Counsel Section Presents


Section Annual Meeting - 11:30 a.m.


a) Announce the officers
b) Update on the previous year
c) Answer any questions

"Effectively Dealing with Contracts: In-house and Law Firm Perspectives" - 12:00 p.m.

Contracts are the critical ties that bind every organization; however, contracts created in isolation of business needs can create their own levels of risk and/or cost. The goal of the contract should not be to eliminate any and all risk but to identify the risks and appropriately manage them. Walk away with tools to better execute and negotiate fair and reasonable contracts on a timely basis.


Greg Perleberg, Partner, Mansfield Tanick & Cohen P.A., formerly in-house at IBM

Jodie Hagstrom, Vice President and Assistant General Counsel, Best Buy

Candice Ciresi, Senior Corporate Counsel, MTS Corporation
