The participants discussed the choice of external legal advisers in business, problematic aspects of communication between the in-house lawyers of the company and external legal advisers, their perception of each other as partners or competitors, as well as the development of the feedback process.
“When working with the in-house lawyers of the client company, we consider ourselves as partners working together on a joint project, – Mikhail said. – It is important for the law firm to find ‘its’ client, and for the client to find ‘its’ law firm, which would be like-minded. Then their relationships will be trustworthy and long-term”.
