21st Annual General Counsel Conference

New York, New York
Tue, 06/09/2009 - Wed, 06/10/2009

Wednesday, June 10
2:00 pm
Dan Connolly will moderate the panel discussion "Getting the Most from Outside Counsel."

The economic crisis has put new emphasis on cost reduction in the law department; according to a recent survey, 75% of law departments face budget cuts in 2009. While general counsel may be tempted to simply push law firms for rate reductions, a better model for all might finding better ways to work together. Included will be a discussion of partnership mechanisms, non-hourly billing and other alternative fee arrangements and use of metrics to improve operations and law firm value. This session will also focus on how general counsel can make these changes stick after the economy starts to improve.
