ABA New Partner/In-House Counsel Conference March 2-3

The Philadelphia Bar Association is proud to sponsor the American Bar Association's 2012 New Partner and In-House Counsel Conference at the Four Seasons in Philadelphia on March 2-3.

Lawyers who have made partner or have gone in-house in the last three years are encouraged. You do not have to be an ABA member or qualify as a young lawyer in the ABA to attend. Rewards of partnership or transitioning to in-house counsel come with a host of new opportunities, responsibilities, and challenges. This conference is specifically designed to help prepare lawyers for their new role and ultimately their long-term success.

Structured over two days, the conference provides learning and networking opportunities to help individuals:

• Understand expectations and anticipate needs
• Build or expand their referral network
• Handle internal firm/company dynamics, ethical issues and risks
• Mitigate the cost of managing electronic discovery
• Engage with top national practitioners including General Counsel

The early bird registration rate of $415 has been extended for all Philadelphia Bar Association members. Please note that we are also offering daily rates and group rates: $250/day; a 30 percent discount for all attendees for law firms or corporations that send three or more individuals; and a 30 percent discount for all attendees when a law firm registrant brings a corporate counsel registrant. More information is available at ambar.org/newpartner.
