Counsel to Counsel

    View Authors October 2009

    Squire Sanders recently co-hosted the Counsel to Counsel forum “Managing Global Law Departments on a Tight Budget: Opportunities, Dangers & Tips” in London. Presentations were given by in-house counsel and law firm insiders on how to move beyond discounting, as well as suggested methods to reduce costs and how these methods work internationally. The discussion also provided practical general advice on managing legal departments within current economic constraints.

    For the event, Joachim Heine, partner in our Frankfurt office, and London partner Stephen J. Nelson created a set of best practices for corporate counsel to follow to maintain a high standard of legal services using external counsel on a much tighter budget.
