It Takes Two: Effectively Leveraging Outside Counsel

Registration is now open

Efficiency and dependability are two major expectations in-house counsel seek from their outside counsel, which many GC’s will admit to being one of their primary concerns. Right now, as the world recovers from COVID-19 and the financial backlash of global lockdowns, corporate departments across the board are looking to reduce spending while still meeting organizational goals. Corporate legal departments must, therefore, find ways to better leverage outside resources. This panel of both in-house and outside counsel will engage in a dialogue of practical insights that companies should implore to effectively manage this partnership. We will discuss:

  • Selecting the best outside counsel for the job
  • Establishing expectations: from budgeting to communication
  • Aligning your outside counsel with the internal business objective


  • Patrick J. Murphy, Shareholder, Williams Porter Day & Neville
  • Edward H. Blakemore, Assistant General Counsel Litigation, Rockwell Automation
  • Curt A. Kramer, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, Navistar
