The Wicker Park Group announced today that LMA Metropolitan New York Chapter has selected Wicker Park Group’s Nat Slavin to participate in a panel discussion entitled “General Counsel Focus: Project Management Position your Firm in Alignment with the Unique Challenges Faced by In-house Counsel” on Thursday, May 16, 2013 at the offices of Latham and Watkins in New York. Legal Project Management is a crucial part of the relationship between inside and outside counsel. A firm’s ability to improve efficiencies and control costs while offering greater predictability creates value beyond the legal work itself by managing expectations and offering increased ROI to client and firm alike. But it is not enough to have these efficiencies in place. Successful marketing and business development professionals understand that communicating these values in a way that is aligned with your client’s unique challenges can strongly influence who will win the business. The panelists will discuss how best to position your firm’s legal project management abilities when pitching new business and the strategies used by the firms that are getting it right. The panel includes: Moderator – Alicia Brown, Director of Strategic Relationships, Bloomberg Law ; Julian “Keith” Isgitt – Managing Attorney, Global External Legal Relations, GlaxoSmithKline; Nat Slavin – Founder & Partner, Wicker Park Group; and other panelists to be announced.
