For in-house counsel, pressure comes from both internal and external demands, and it's a daily challenge to manage your time. You need strategies for your legal department to deal with these stressors while helping it stay within the limits of your company's financial and staffing resources. This summit is where you'll find those strategies. Our presenters offer analysis and insights on everything from conflict resolution, to how paralegals can help your in-house department, to how to build resiliency in your practice, and more. Whether your department is large or small, our plenary and breakout sessions have the solutions that put your organization in a position to succeed.
