What are the issues that keep law firm general counsel awake at night? This panel will offer insights into these nettlesome topics from the perspective of full-time, part-time, and outside law firm counsel. The topics to be considered will be: (1) client-imposed outside counsel guidelines; (2) representing the marijuana industry in a time of shifting federal policy; (3) the challenges of prior-work conflicts-of-interest and managing meaningful client waivers of conflicts; (4) the privileged nature of internal law firm communications generally and in the setting of law firm whistleblowers; and (5) managing the quality delivery of services to clients.
