Jack Massey, Steve Roberts Offer Advice for In-House, Outside Counsel in CLE Event: ‘Perfecting the Partnership’

Posted on: June 23rd, 2017

Eversheds Sutherland (US) attorneys Jack Massey and Steve Roberts are presenting “Perfecting the Partnership: What In-House Lawyers Wish Outside Counsel Understood About Litigation and Vice-Versa” to the Houston chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel. This continuing legal education event is set for June 28, 2017.
Corporate dispute resolution and litigation can involve huge, bet-the-company trials to breach-of-contract matters that are handled out of court. All require careful strategic planning and an understanding of the counterparties and issues, all with an eye toward business objectives.A panel of veteran litigators will discuss best practices in working with outside counsel on disputes including:
• Beginning of matter strategic planning and scoping
• Communication
• Budgeting
• When things don’t go as planned
• End-of-matter feedback
Mr. Massey and Mr. Roberts are commercial litigators with years of experience working with in-house counsel. They also have successful track records of handling crisis response and internal investigations. Both were key players in the investigations and litigation following the BP Macondo oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.
