The LMA Bay Area local group, in conjunction with the LMA Silicon Valley city group, is thrilled to announce the line-up of general counsel for the 5th Annual Silicon Valley In-House Counsel Summit. In what has become an annual favorite, the panel will be moderated by LMA Hall of Famer Nat Slavin, and will highlight important trends and topics for improving the relationship between outside law firms and in-house counsel. 

Legal competition is fierce and in-house counsel are exercising more control over budgets, strategy and staffing than ever before. To succeed, outside counsel must rethink their service delivery model, budgeting process, communications strategy and approach to building and maintaining relationships. Join this moderated discussion with leading in-house counsel from Silicon Valley corporations as they discuss the changing relationship, demands and expectations of long-term successful partnerships.

  • Get – and keep – the attention of in-house counsel
  • Build relationships with them, their team, legal operations and their business units -- and how not to
  • Define and provide value
  • Offer strategic client service to an in-house department
  • Demonstrate an understanding of their business and culture
  • Avoid mistakes

Who should attend:
