Helping in-house and outside counsel work better together

Two key strategies to bring the two sides closer and avoid mistakes.

While sitting at a bad Little League game last night (Cubs vs. Mets; no surprise there), I was comparing lawyer notes with a parent who happens to be outside counsel (though not currently my outside counsel).

The theme of our conversation was that, during my 15-year stint as outside counsel, I thought I was pretty dialed in to my clients’ needs. In reality, I probably grasped less than a third of what they were dealing with.
