Strong partnerships between corporations, insurers, and outside counsel are critical to the success of the defense bar. Open lines of communication are essential to nurture these partnerships. To maintain open and regular communications, many corporations and insurers hold “fly-in” meetings for their outside counsel to discuss corporate guidelines, policies, new defense strategies, litigation trends, provide education on company products, discuss recent cases of interest, and more. Often, these critical meetings are held at great expense to the host corporation.
To help facilitate these important meetings, DRI’s Counsel Meeting Program was created. This easy-to-use program offers a turn-key solution allowing companies and insurance carriers to meet with their outside counsel while attending a DRI seminar. Hosting your counsel meeting through this program gives your organization access to complimentary meeting space with audio/visual equipment, coffee/snacks, complimentary registrations for the DRI seminar, travel expenses for designated company representatives, and more.
In most cases, DRI’s Counsel Meeting Program eliminates the costs of hosting these meetings and facilitates more consistent and timely communications between clients, counsel and carriers. For outside counsel, attending meetings at DRI seminars provides enhanced networking opportunities, meeting time with clients, and access to gold-standard education all in one trip.
