Luncheon Program

 In (the) House:  

Exploring the careful balancing act of addressing legal and business needs within a company

Our distinguished panel will draw on their own experiences in addressing and balancing the challenges that often face practicing lawyers as they transition to in-house positions where the company's business executives and lawyers often approach the general task of accomplishing the company's business objectives from different directions. We will explore legal counsel's desire to abate legal risk through anticipating and analyzing potential issues versus the business executives' desire to nimbly and aggressively enter into and monetize new markets, products, and efficiencies by closing deals and propelling the company forward. We will also explore legal counsel's role in providing advice as a lawyer in a firm as opposed to that of a corporate legal executive -- how to be both responsive and creative when faced with legal obstacles to closing a deal, while at all times adhering to a lawyer’s ethical and professional responsibilities.
