Institute for Corporate Counsel

December 6, 2017
The California Club
Los Angeles

A Partnership of In House and Outside Counsel

The Institute for Corporate Counsel is the premier Los Angeles conference for in-house and outside counsel and those who advise them. The Institute brings together over 500 professionals annually, including in-house counsel, outside attorneys, corporate officers and directors, accountants, consultants, compliance officers, financial planners, HR professionals, investors, librarians, legal technology specialists, litigation support professionals, public relations professionals, and legal assistants.

Law, Business and Politics

The day-long Institute focuses on the intersection of law, business and politics. The Institute provides a venue for our panelists and participants to better understand Los Angeles' evolving business environment, as well as best practices and changes in the law which can impact business operations. The Institute provides current information, legal guidelines, and practical advice which can be immediately put into practice in an in-house legal department or a law firm. The 2017 Institute will provide meaningful opportunities to interact with in-house counsel, including a luncheon, networking refreshment breaks and hosted cocktail reception. CE units for lawyers and accountants will be available.

Planning for the 2017 Institute is underway. Our speaker lineup currently includes: Jose Fernandez, Former Assistant Secretary of State for Economic, Energy and Business Affairs (Obama Administration) and the General Counsel of Activision Blizzard, California Resources and Southern California Gas. Keep checking back for more programming update as they become available. 

Featured speakers at the 2016 Institute included California Supreme Court Justice Leondra Kruger, Los Angeles Rams' Chief Operating Officer Kevin Demoff and former General Counsel and Acting Secretary of the United States Department of Commerce Cameron Kerry (Sidley Austin). The 44th and 46th Solicitors Generals of the United States provided an overview of developments at the U.S. Supreme Court in a session moderated by USC Gould Professor Rebecca Brown. USC political commentator Dan Schnur led a post mortem on the 2016 Presidential Election with NewYork Times National Correspondent Jennifer Medina and Rick Jacobs, L.A.'s former Executive Vice Mayor. The General Counsel of CBRE Global Investors, the LA Clippers, and Playboy Enterprises and the former General Counsel of Dole Food Company provided insights, and many more business leaders and top in house and outside lawyers provided updates on laws and other developments!
