"10 Tips to Strengthen Relationships with Outside Counsel" including comments from Brad Blickstein.
The business of law is more difficult than ever. In-house counsel are reducing budgets and some are reducing staff. General counsel are under pressure to cut costs and increase efficiency, while never forgetting that the key to their success is managing and mitigating risk in an increasingly sensitive regulatory environment.
Meanwhile, many law firms are under intense pressure. The new economy has left their financial models broken. For the first time ever, large firms are laying off substantial numbers of attorneys—even partners. They are under pressure to lower rates, provide alternative models and change the way they do business.
