Oct. 16, 2012 - PRLog -- In a challenging economic market, a feature of an annual conference is getting quite a bit of attention from the legal industry.  Over 400 life sciences leaders gather in New York in December every year to participate in American Conference Institute’s Annual Drug and Medical Device Litigation conference, taking place this year for December 3 – 5, 2012 at the Millennium Broadway hotel in NY.   This year, however, the industry buzz is all the business development master class led by in-house counsel from leading pharmaceutical and medical device companies.

In this unique session, the attendees have the rare opportunity to connect directly with in-house counsel from Allergan, Medtronic, Ben Venue Laboratories, NAL Pharmaceuticals, Purdue Pharma and Sanofi US to hear their candid perspectives on how they select and evaluate their outside counsel.   According to Stacey Evans, Program Director with ACI, in an economy plagued by shrinking legal budgets, lawyers are looking for every competitive advantage.  As Evans puts it, “In the high-stakes products liability market, the chance to meet with in-house counsel is proving to be an unmissable opportunity.”   According to the program description and conference organizers, the in-house counsel will be revealing:

•   The things that clients really want to know before engaging outside counsel
•   Best practices for communications and candor with clients
•   How to develop relationships while putting a focus on knowledge and quality
•   Pet peeves: “worst practices” that outside counsel should avoid committing
•   Expectations relating to litigation budgets
•   How legal fees are being structured into law firm selection and evaluation
