Modern businesses demand focused, cost-effective legal advice and services. In-house law departments and external law firms and other legal service providers are called on to innovate to meet those needs. Participants along the legal value chain (business clients, in-house counsel, external counsel, other service providers) are rethinking how to procure, provide, and consume legal services. New, potentially disruptive, technologies and approaches to the provision of legal services present opportunities to serve client needs more effectively and efficiently, whether implementing better processes or calling on a variety of service providers to meet different legal needs of a company.
During this panel Miguel Pozo
and his fellow panelists will explore innovative approaches to meeting the needs of your corporate clients, whether you are an in-house attorney working with your business colleagues or an outside attorney working with a business client. They will discuss new ways to think about the relationship between a law firm (or other legal service provider) and an in-house law department. The discussion will touch on ideas ranging from how to engage in a more thoughtful procurement process when seeking legal services, and how to respond to that process as a service provider; and how to rethink how you interact with external/in-house counsel.
