Risk Roundtables (New DC Event + NY Report)



We were pleased to host the first of several upcoming Risk Roundtables focusing on outside counsel guideline / terms of business management. Our first session took place a few weeks ago in New York.

Eric Nerland, Intapp Risk Practice Director, presented at the event and send these notes:
  • "About 30 legal professionals, mostly from the GC’s office, gathered to hear best practices on OCG’s, RFP’s and other client commitment documents.  The discussion largely centered on awareness of what firms have agreed to and how to ensure firm compliance."
  • "Most of the attendees agreed, that the bulk of the issue is making sure the firms is staying in-line with their “clients rules of the road” is a content challenge.  Informing various roles and group throughout the firm of the guidelines, and most recent updates, is an absolute must.  Moreover, making sure that attention is paid to more then just the billing terms is also needed – which historically has been hard to achieve in firms."
Our next event in this series is set for October 19th in Washington DC. As with the NY event, we'll be featuring presentations and discussion lead by Anthony Davis from Hinshaw & Culbertson and Eric Nerland.

Attendance is by invitation only and is limited to qualified law firms and personnel. Please contact info@riskroundtable.com for more details.
