Tips for Selecting and Managing Outside Counsel

Event Description

Online registration is now closed.
If you would still like to join, email by 9:00 a.m. on June 9.

Our experienced panelists will discuss various approaches in selecting outside counsel. How do you introduce a new issue with a longstanding, reliable relationship? When and how to use metrics and/or various diversity, equity and inclusion considerations? How does cost factor into your selection analysis? When do you seek new outside counsel vs. leveraging a longstanding relationship where counsel can hit the ground running?
