This year, the Association of Corporate Counsel annual conference will attract thousands of attendees from around the world who come to exchange strategies for creating more dynamic legal departments.

All four panelists in the ACC session A Play-by-Play Guide to Creating Contracts Playbooks  are corporate counsel with a range of experiences—from in-house counsel at a Fortune 50 company to former general counsel who built a legal department and its robust playbooks training program. I was asked to moderate the panel as head of the Pangea3 corporate transactional team, which helps companies develop contracts playbooks and use them to review, draft and negotiate contracts.

In preparing for the panel, we pulled from our diverse experiences to provide practical takeaways for our audience. During the discussion, we will examine how to persuade stakeholders that you should create a playbook: not only why you should create one, but also who will use it and how it will be used. Once you have the tools you need, we’ll move on to the “How To’s” of playbook development and implementation. We’ll wrap up with audience questions, top practical tips and a summary of the most important takeaways from the panel.

If you’re interested in creating a playbook but aren’t able to make the session,it will be recorded and available on West LegalEdcenter. Check back with Legal Current for my summary after the session and other news from the show.
