Corporate Counsel

About the Committee


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.

Our 2023 seminar, which will be at the Ritz Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes resort, is planned for February 16–18. Register NOW.

Members can also become active in our committee by participating in one of our subcommittees and the many projects we have in the works. 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: Enterprise Risk Management; Diversity, Equity and Inclusion/Membership and Marketing; Content; and In-House Counsel Forum. If you are interested in joining 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, please contact any of the committee cochairs.

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