Chicago Restructuring Partner Jason DeJonker will speak at the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) Corporate Counsel conference, March 15-18 in San Francisco, Calif. DeJonker will moderate a panel on “Strategies and Technology for Creating an Innovative Law Firms and In-House Legal Departments,” where panelists will share their real-world experience in building the “New Law” firms, the race among multinational law firms to find the competitive edge in the use of legal technology to deliver legal services, and how corporate legal teams have used technology to better align themselves with the goals of the C-Suite.
DeJonker also will speak on a panel at the HNBA Business Development Institute on March 17, a new program designed to teach new and aspiring law firm partners the business development strategies they will need to become successful rainmakers at their firms. A panel composed of high-ranking in-house counsel with hiring authority and senior law firm rainmakers with successful practices will act out scenarios, including a cocktail reception elevator pitch and a more formal pitch meeting scenario. Role play of each scenario will be followed by a Q&A session.
