The Corporate Counsel Committee offers dynamic opportunities for in-house and outside counsel to discuss and promote cutting-edge solutions and best practices on issues of concern to both – substantive, process and litigation management issues, as well as in-house-outside counsel relationships. The committee has led the profession in focusing on methods of controlling the costs of corporate litigation through the study of innovative billing and budgeting techniques, imaginative litigation management methods, effective and efficient use of cutting-edge litigation technology, and alternatives to litigation. It also focuses on corporate compliance and preventative law, investigations, and a variety of substantive topics of interest to its members.

Message from the Chairs

The Corporate Counsel Committee is dedicated to providing topical educational opportunities, programming and other resources for both in-house counsel and the outside counsel who work with them, as well as valuable networking opportunities locally as well as nationally. You can learn more about these opportunities by attending one of our monthly Committee meetings, which are set for the fourth (4th) Thursday of each month at 2 pm Eastern/1 pm Central/12 pm Mountain/11 am Pacific. You can obtain more information by contacting any of the four committee cochairs listed below.

In the coming year, we are planning a dynamic track of programming, as well as social events, including a full Corporate Counsel track at the Section Annual Conference in Washington, D.C., May 1–3, 2024. You can learn more about the SAC here.

Section members can become active in our committee by participating in one of our subcommittees and/or in one of the many projects we have in the works. You do not have to be in-house counsel to participate. One of the easiest and most fulfilling ways to get started is to submit content for our newsletter or website. We also have subcommittees/task forces in the following areas: Newsletter/Content; Programming; Young Advocates; Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; Membership and Marketing; Social Media/Website; Enterprise Risk and Crisis Management; Internal Investigations; ESG; Data Privacy and Security; E-Discovery; 30(b)(6); and In-House Counsel Forum. If you are interested in participating in any of our subcommittees or submitting program proposals, newsletter articles, or website content, or if you have ideas on ways we can meet your needs, or if you are just looking to network and learn more about what the Litigation Section and our committee have to offer, please contact any of the committee cochairs listed below.

We look forward to meeting you, hearing from you, and actively addressing your professional needs and the needs of your in-house clients.
