*Innovative Approaches to Meeting Your Clients' Needs

  • Briggs and Morgan 80 S 8th Street #2200 Minneapolis (map)


*Free for newly admitted lawyers only

Description: 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, calling on a variety of service providers to meet different legal needs of a company, or figuring out how to be agile and dynamic in staffing your law department.

This panel 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. Our panelists 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; how to rethink how you interact with external/in-house counsel; and evolving approaches to talent recruitment and management. Participants are invited to a networking happy hour following the panel to continue the discussion and exchange ideas.
