Arent Fox LLP has selected WPG’s Tara Weintritt to speak at the firm’s Associate Retreat. On April 21-22, 2016, Tara Weintritt will partner with the firm to present a two-day program that kicks of with a presentation on the topic of “Client Expectations in Today’s Marketplace.” Big Law is operating in a highly competitive environment and in-house counsel appear to be setting the rules for engagement – everything from more progressive RFP processes to moving work in-house; from expectations of aggressive pricing to demands on firms to bring new value. This session will focus on key findings of feedback gathered from hundreds of law firm clients including in-house counsel, business owners and company executives. Clients want law firms to be responsive, address problems before they occur and provide value that make clients’ jobs easier. Tara will share the information on what clients value most in order for firms to keep and maximize their business.
