Counseling Local Governments: A Comparison of In-House and Outside Counsel Models (06/07/22)

Includes a Live Event on 06-07-2022 at 4:00 PM (CDT)

This is a hybrid event with an in-person and a webinar option. Please select the appropriate button when registering if you plan to attend in-person.

The seminar seeks to explore the role of counsel to local governments and to compare those who have their own in-house legal departments and who have retained outside counsel to serve as the unit’s legal counsel. The seminar will feature speakers that are in-house counsel to units of local government as well as speakers from firms that cater to local government representation.

Tony Fioretti, Deputy Chief Attorney, Cook County Forest Preserves
Steven Elrod, Partner, Elrod Friedman
Arthur L. Janura, Jr., Corporation Counsel, Village of Hoffman Estates
Additional Speaker TBA

C. Harrison Cooper, Remedy Medical Properties; Chair, CBA Local Government Committee
