15 Questions You Never Dared To Ask

August 04, 2022

Zoom | Young Practitioners

August 4, 2022 | 10:00 am–11:00 am EDT

Who should attend: Young Practitioners (i.e., practitioners with less than five years of experience in the brand legal profession)

Location: Zoom. A link will be sent upon registration.

Join us as we ask and answer 15 questions many young practitioners are too scared to ask at work. Panelists will include mid-level and senior attorneys from the US and the EU, from private practice and in-house.

Panelists will give their opinions on questions such as:

  • What can I and can‘t I bill clients for?
  • How should I decline a request to sign a declaration that I cannot verify?
  • What’s the best way for me to follow up with non-responsive clients and supervisors?
  • How can I successfully balance multiple projects from multiple supervisors?

The panel discussion will last for about 40 minutes and then we will open it up to the participants to submit any of their own new or follow-up questions in real time. The event may include breakout sessions so that questions can be asked/answered in a more intimate environment.

The event is open to members and non-members and is free of charge.
