CANCELLED! San Fran: Choosing & Using a Lawyer



  • Legal risks are expensive. But they don't have to be. Learn how to effectively use your lawyer and your money!


    Helen Conroy(Bio), Attorney at Law
    Judy Rosenberg(Bio), Senior Consultant, Terranova Consulting Group

    For any company, legal risks are nothing more than business risks with a much higher price tag--which is why businesses need to retain counsel to advise them. But legal services cost a lot. Do your legal bills really need to be as high as they are?

    Helen Conroy, a seasoned intellectual property lawyer, will discuss factors to consider in choosing an attorney or law firm, and in the pricing of legal services. She will also show you a variety of ways to work with your counsel (and will describe steps you can take on your own) to reduce your legal expense, in the short and the long term.

    Judith Rosenberg, an experienced employment lawyer and consultant, will discuss how to use lawyers and consultants to avoid employee relations problems and how you can work efficiently with your lawyer when you need assistance.
