In-House Correspondence: Best practices for communicating with in-house legal teams

Inflation, supply chain issues, and staff shortages mean companies are doing even more with fewer resources and tighter budget constraints. This strain means it’s more critical than ever for outside legal teams to communicate efficiently and demonstrate their value. Join Kara Fielder Zioba, formerly of The Hershey Company and now at Perkins Coie, to discuss best practices for working with in-house clients. During this roundtable discussion, participants will talk about principles of effective communication with in-house teams and work towards understanding how to tailor their messages to them. Topics will include:

  • Demonstrating understanding of clients’ business objectives and strategies
  • Organizing information so that it’s digestible for key team members
  • Providing clear, task-focused, timely, and effective communications
