Course Description

In this webcast, ExecSense examines everything General Counsel need to know when working with external legal teams. Take the 60 minutes to view this webcast to learn transparency best practices for communication, retention, billing, goal setting and more.

This webcast is led by 3 experts on the topic, William Ireland (Partner – Haight Brown & Bonesteel LLP) and Seetal Tejura (Partner – Alverson, Taylor, Mortensen & Sanders), and Joe Swift (Shareholder – Brown & James, P.C.), and discusses what you need to know to be able to ensure that communications between yourself and your external legal teams are transparent, effective, efficient and as privileged as they can be.

In this 60-minute session, General Counsel will learn:

  • Communication Transparency: How to communicate with outside legal teams to ensure you receive the information you need in a format and frequency that meets your needs as a client.
  • Work Product Transparency: What issues arise when working with transparency? Learn how to insure that advice of counsel is protected from disclosure when using cloud-based tools such as Drop Box/Serengeti/Hosting.
  • Retention Transparency: Best practices for ensuring that the agreements made at the time the external legal team is retained foster transparent, effective and efficient communications and representation.
  • Billing Transparency: One line billing statements are a thing of the past. Expect and get a provider of legal services who partners with you for an anticipated bottom line.
  • Client Transparency: How to ensure that the legal team is aware of the client’s business objectives.
  • Transparency in Goal Setting: How to work with your lawyer to set goals, and how to work with your lawyer when the goals are moving.
