An annual “legal network meeting” (Carrillion)

Each year the legal team at Carrillion, the $8 billion UK building company, hosts a “legal network meeting.” Attending it are the 20-some in-house lawyers, the company’sw main external advisers, and senior internal clients — in all around 160 people.

“Its purpose is to cover issues highlighting what the business is all about — normally the CEO or other senior management will speak at it,” reports Law Dept. Quarterly, Vol. 2, Sept./Nov. 2006 at 40. An ambitious and progressive idea, to unite the three legs of the legal stool: company lawyers, their law firm partners, and the clients who draw on both of them for legal advice.
