We Held a Roundtable Titled “Companies and Law Firms: Managing the Relationship / Şirketler ve Hukuk Büroları: İlişkiyi Yönetmek.”

We held a precious GC Roundtable in İzmir, which was moderated by our Partners Nazan Diri Bal and Turhan Mergen, in the event organized by The Legal 500 (Legalease). In the two-hour roundtable, we delved into a topic of great concern for both GCs and outside counsels, titled “Companies and Law Firms: Managing the Relationship / Şirketler ve Hukuk Büroları: İlişkiyi Yönetmek.”

With the invaluable participation of attendant GCs from an in-house perspective, we had fruitful discussions and yielded solution-oriented results for managing this critical relationship. The roundtable encompassed various discussions, ranging from the importance of presenting cost-effective, rapid solutions that align with business preferences from the perspective of law firms to discussions on budget management, charge policy arrangements, and the roles of GCs as bridges between companies and outside counsel from the legal counsel’s side, among other topics.
