Tom Karnes, Partner at Ater Wynne LLP, will moderate a panel discussion with Lisa Kaner, Vice President, General Counsel & Corporate Compliance for Portland General Electric, Sid Khanijou, Associate General Counsel for Cambia Health Solutions, Chad Paulson, General Counsel for Blount, and Heidee Stoller, Counsel at Perkins Coie, touching on unique strategies for how to create and maintain effective working relationships with in-house counsel.
Our panel will discuss the role of the legal department as part of the larger organization, strategies for building an efficient outside counsel/in-house team, and how to create value for the in-house legal department.
