Canadian Lawyer Magazine examines Telus and Lerners' relationship
In the July issue of Canadian Lawyer Magazine, Jennifer Brown looks at how the relationship between external and in house counsel evolve over time. She interviews associate general counsel at Telus, Alan Dabb, and Lerners partners Lisa Munro and Pino Cianfarani about the successes and challenges they have faced and the evolutionary path their relationship has taken over the past 5 years.; What’s often left out of that discussion is how law firms and in-house counsel work, over time, to iron out bumps in the road and change up what works for them and their respective business units as the relationship evolves. When it works well, the law firm and in-house counsel develop critical points of contact.
