Many in-house lawyers lament that their legal departments are flat organizations with minimal resources to develop, advance or carve out a bigger role. Meanwhile, law firm lawyers often find the expectations of general counsel to be increasingly enigmatic and law firms find it challenging to distinguish themselves. At this session, we will explore the path for in-house lawyers and their outside counsel expectations. With probing questions posed by legal industry and workplace expert Debbie Epstein Henry, a distinguished general counsel panel will explore how they advanced to the coveted general counsel spot and developed the skills to secure the top job.  The general counsel panel will also share: Expectations of their teams and how in-house lawyers can best hone their skills and expand their platform, roles and responsibilities How to interact with outside counsel as well as determine what makes a law firm stand out Tips on learning a client’s business and how to tailor outside counsel approaches based on company size, industry, market shifts and other variables We hope you will join us for this thought provoking, interactive discussion that will leave you empowered to explore the opportunities that present and the challenges that remain in cultivating a better in-house path and setting yourself apart as outside counsel.
