Australian In-House Teams Look To Direct Briefings
Lawyers Weekly (Australia)
Lawyers Weekly (Australia) covers the recent trend where corporate legal departments brief barristers directly rather than work through solicitors, which saves on external legal costs. In the article, Tanya Khan discusses the benefits of the trend and provides related data from the ACC Australia (ACLA) 2015 In-House Counsel Report: Benchmarks and Leading Practices. The article also notes that one of the winners at the ACC Australia Australian In-House Lawyer Awards, presented earlier this month, was recognized for their direct briefing practices.
