    Please join us for the BIG DEBATE: The best solution to reduce outside counsel cost?!

    Three “debate teams” are faced with a great challenge put forth by the (hypothetical) General Counsel: Reduce spending related to outside counsel. 

    Each team will build a business case for why their approach is the best way forward:

    • Team 1 will argue that bringing more work in-house is the best approach
    • Team 2 wants to leverage ALSPs more
    • And Team 3 suggests renegotiating terms with existing outside counsel

    Hear which arguments are the most convincing and will win over the GC - and YOU?

    This debate is powered by ONIT and SimpleLegal.
