Forecasting, Managing, & Responding to Today's Legal Threats

The Federation of Defense & Corporate Counsel (FDCC) will present the 11(th) Annual Corporate Counsel Symposium (CCS) on September 17-19, 2014 at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, Arizona. The CCS is highly regarded as the preeminent conference for In-house and Outside Counsel to provide cutting-edge services to their clients.

The 2014 CCS features a forward-looking program, designed to equip those who direct corporate legal departments and litigation with ideas, innovations, and insights that will help protect the company in these most trying times. Some of the nation's most experienced corporate counsel, consultants, and outside counsel will present practical tools to help corporate counsel defend the company, forecast, manage, and respond to the latest legal threats. Attendees have the opportunity to network with the best and the brightest in-house and outside counsel, participate in the Corporate Counsel Roundtable discussion, and dine at some of the finest restaurants in Phoenix.

Those who direct corporate legal departments and litigation will get their "game on" with acclaimed speakers including Sean Carter, a Harvard Law grad who practiced corporate securities law before becoming the country's foremost "Humorist at Law"; Ed Hochuli, Partner with Jones Skelton & Hochuli, who moonlights as an NFL Referee; and former Major League Umpire Jim McKean, currently working as a consultant for ESPN and the MLB Network.

The current President of the FDCC is Timothy Pratt, Executive Vice-President, Secretary, Chief Administrative Officer, and General Counsel of Boston Scientific Corporation. According to Pratt, "I find the CCS to be one of the best in teaching practical skills to in-house counsel. The topics are timely, the presenters are excellent, and the opportunities for networking and interactive discussions are vast. I highly recommend the CCS to any in-house counsel involved in litigation management."

The FDCC is an international organization founded in 1936 to further the principles of knowledge, justice, and fellowship. The Federation has approximately 1400 members from the United States and throughout the world.
