The dynamic between outside counsel and in-house counsel is more important than ever before. Outside counsel’s ultimate goal should be to function as, and to be regarded as, an extension of an in-house legal department. However, this is easier said than done with the ever changing landscape of legal departments, law firms, and the business and economic climate. Here’s a top five list of things to do (and not do) to build a long-term and reciprocal relationship of trust and loyalty that addresses, among other things:
– Evolving the relationship as attorneys transition from firm to in-house and as outside counsel switches law firms
– What General Counsel look for in an outside counsel
– How outside counsel can set themselves apart from others
– Business models and billing
– GC’s pet peeves

The Berkeley Center for Law and Business is Berkeley Law’s hub for rigorous, relevant, and empirically based research, education, and programming on the interrelationships of the law, business, and the economy. Our areas of focus include venture capital and entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility, capital markets, and mergers and acquisitions. Our executive education programs, which now include venture capital, blockchain, and finance academies, have honed the skills of practicing attorneys, executives, and investors from over 20 different countries.
Berkeley Law is the world’s leading institution for the study of corporate law, finance, capital markets, and innovation. To achieve this objective Berkeley leverages its leading faculty in these areas as well as its unique geographical location with respect to Silicon Valley. In pursuit of these objectives Berkeley adheres to its social mission as the top public law school in the country.
Our tuition structure encourages organizations to send multiple attendees. We have found that the more attendees within an organization that hear new ideas, strategies and concepts taught at the Outside Counsel Workshop, the more likely they are implemented when executives return to the work environment. This is a core principal of the Outside Counsel Workshop, practical ideas that can be implemented.
