The New York City Bar Association and Thomson Reuters will co-host the Institute for Corporate Counsel: Navigating the Boardroom, the Courtroom and the Space Between on Friday, Dec. 7, 2012, at the New York City Bar Association, 42 West 44th Street in Manhattan.

In-house counsel are increasingly responsible for guiding executive leadership through such corporate events as cooperative mergers, hostile takeovers, major global litigation, internal investigations, employee misconduct and public relations crises. This conference will feature general counsel from some of the world’s largest and most successful public corporations, drawing upon their real-world experience in a variety of hour-long panels, each devoted to a distinct subject area. Panelists will describe the planning, strategy and foresight required to add significant value to the operations of the corporation.

At midday, the groups will gather for lunch, followed by a keynote address by Christine Varney, former Head of the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division, and Kathryn Ruemmler, current White House Counsel.

“The Institute for Corporate Counsel is a day-long summit that will allow both in-house and outside counsel to step inside the executive suite and learn from some of the most successful legal officers in global industry,” said David R. Marriott, a partner at Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP and program chair of the event.
