Moderator: Robert Denby
Panelists: Greg Kanan, Douglas Laird, Simon Malko, Allison Rhodes

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.
