‘Top Ten Reasons GCs Value Collaboration amongst External Lawyers’ and what they don’t like!

Heidi Gardner should need no introduction. But in case you don’t know Heidi, see her book ‘Smart Collaboration’.

Following the runaway success of Smart Collaboration, Heidi has recently published a Whitepaper, via Harvard Law School – where she is a Distinguished Fellow, titled ‘Harness the Power of Smart Collaboration for In-house Lawyers‘* [pdf].

It makes for an interesting read.

Of particular [personal] interest are two charts :

1. Top 10 Reasons GCs Value Collaboration amongst External Lawyers


2.  Signals of Excellent and Deficient Collaboration with Outside Firms.




*As a side note I understand this Whitepaper is a prelude to Heidi’s new book which is due for publication 30 April 2020 – ‘Smart Collaboration for in-house Legal Teams’.
