Overview (Program Summary)

A program hosted by:

ACC Chicago

During this lunch program, Christine Binotti of Motorola Solutions and Laura Friedel from Levenfeld Pearlstein will share their non-traditional approach to supporting the HR and deal teams in M&A, and how it's positively impacted both of their teams.

Following discussion of their "case study," Christine and Laura will facilitate a discussion of non-traditional arrangements between corporate counsel and outside lawyers, focusing on:

  • Substantive areas that are ripe for this type of approach
  • Determining the scope of work and how to handle items on the borders
  • Appropriate pricing models
  • Establishing expectations for communication and approval
  • Finding the right balance between oversight and autonomy
  • Potential hurdles in establishing a non-traditional arrangement
  • Tools to create and effective, mutually-beneficial relationship


Seats are limited, if you sign up, please be intentional about attending and let us know if your plans change.  

Parking Garage: 500 West Monroe; entrance on the north side of West Monroe between South Clinton and South Canal.
