Legal Pitch Day will be a 3-hour session dedicated to introducing in-house counsel and Black outside counsel to discuss opportunities for working together. Meetings will be 15 minutes.
Legal departments are not charged for this program. Price to participate for law firms will be $2000
Participating firms are guaranteed a minimum of two interviews with legal departments. Firms may determine which attorneys to send to interviews. Legal departments will staff 1 – 2 tables. Law firms will send 1 -2 attorneys per interview.
Legal departments will specify practice areas in which they are seeking outside counsel support from the following list:
Intellectual Property Litigation
Employment Litigation & Counseling
Intellectual Property Transactions
Privacy and Data Security
Real Estate Litigation
Real Estate Transactions
Government Investigations & White Collar Defense
Finance & Securities
Law firm registrants will specify practice areas in which they have expertise and interest in servicing clients. Legal departments and law firms will be provided lists of participating organizations and opportunity to identify firms or legal departments they do not wish to meet with due to conflict of interest, e.g. opposing parties in litigation. No later than two weeks before Pitch day a schedule of legal department – law firm meetings will be circulated.
Legal departments are expected to send in-house counsel who have genuine interest and authority to retain law firms, and law firms are being provided an introduction without a guarantee of work.
