When to Use Outside Counsel, When to DIY and When to Hire your First In-House Counsel
Cooley – 1299 Pennsylvania, NW Suite 700
Join us for our next Cooley U program as we take a deep dive into when and how to work with outside counsel and in-house counsel.
This session will cover:
- What types of legal or quasi-legal work it’s generally okay to do yourself
- What types of things you should ask your outside counsel to help with
- When it’s the right time to hire in-house counsel
- Practical tips and materials to help you master the areas of legal work that fall under your scope as a CEO
Cooley U is a unique series designed to foster collaboration and knowledge-sharing among a select group of executive officers of high growth stage, venture backed companies and investors in the DC area. The program includes a few special guests who are seasoned experts on the particular topic and have “been there, done that.” This is a founders club atmosphere that focuses on business-related topics that are critical to building, scaling, innovating and successfully exiting your company. This is not intended to be a one-sided presentation on the legal technicalities – but rather an intimate, engaging roundtable discussion with the ultimate goal of providing pragmatic business advice and actionable takeaways that you can implement. Cooley U events are intended to be collaborative and educational in nature, and are not primarily networking events.
