TOPIC: From Private Practice to In-House - Building Relationships
Relationship building is an essential skill for all in house lawyers. Those who have recently made the move from private practice may find that winning over some of their new internal clients can be more difficult than expected. Familiar with building client relationships in their private practice firm, they will now be faced with new challenges. How do you approach showing your internal clients what you do, how the legal team operates and how to help each other? How do you gain ground with colleagues who have little knowledge (or interest) in legal issues? And how do you build relationships in an environment where nobody has the time?
In this 60 minute workshop, we will look at how to overcome these obstacles and adapt private practice marketing approaches and understanding to suit the demands on an in-house lawyer. The session will finish with practical suggestions for attendees to put any lessons learned into practice when they return to work.

Uberisation is a media and multiform phenomenon, characterised by being put in direct contact via digital platforms with private individuals who offer and consume services. It is a horizontal economic model of the “peer to peer” variety which achieves savings versus the classical entrepreneurial organisation with its salaried employees.
This phenomenon presents companies with new questions that they cannot ignore, because the phenomenon has long moved beyond the single domain of transport (Uber, Blablacar, Deliveroo…) or hotel services (AirBnB, Homelidays….). It extends today to the financial sector (peer to peer lending) and is developing in the domain of services (emergency services and home repairs, legal aid services…). Sectors which are safe from “uberisation” are rare. It is therefore indispensable that we understand the phenomenon and its main economic and legal issues.

Patent litigation is a complex, high-stakes endeavor that requires multidisciplinary expertise in order to win. It’s also typically very expensive, with legal fees sometimes exceeding $10 million per case. Join our experienced panelists as they discuss techniques they use to achieve successful results in patent litigation—whether through settlement or judgment—while keeping legal fees reasonable. They will focus on optimally staffing cases, focusing early and exclusively on dispositive issues, and using IPRs.
