The Blueprint

Through instruction and experiential learning participants will work together to learn skills and behaviors for building successful business relationships. Outside Counsel will have the opportunity to work in teams to develop a formal pitch from a mock RFQ for legal services, which will be presented to real in-house counsel. In-House Counsel assigning work or trying to increase their visibility around counsel selection will have an opportunity to develop key questions and develop a checklist for assessing pitches. In-house counsel will use a mock RFQ and hear a pitch from real outside counsel.
