Avoid Landmines! Avoid Landmines! In-House Politics 101:  Managing internal and external relationships.
Avoid Landmines! In-House Politics 101:  Managing internal and external relationships.In-house counsel play in crucial role in managing internal clients and outside counsel.  A major part of the role is effectively navigating the internal politics that are at play between legal and business partners as they all work to resolve many issues.  The opportunities to advance within an organization may also be impacted by your ability, or lack thereof, to manage relationships (and avoid landmines) amongst in-house colleagues.  The CLE will provide tips on managing these relationships from experienced in-house members and from outside counsel perspective.

Legal Storytelling
I propose a legal storytelling workshop. NAPABA has accepted a similar proposal and I will be presenting at the Northeast Regional Conference in June, 2018.The workshop (open to 50) will include a discussion on story theory, an example of storytelling by me (I have told stories on stage in addition to being a trial lawyer), a presentation on two story forms (change stories and trial stories), a six-word-story workshop, and a masterclass on storytelling.Rather than listening to a conversation, attendees will actively participate and will learn how to tell a story, the most powerful form of persuasion.

Securing Site Plan Control in Real Estate Developments
Oftentimes the most critical issue in a commercial real estate development is how the site lays out.  Where will the buildings be?  How is access accomplished?  What is the traffic pattern within the development?  What kind of view corridors are there? This presentation will discuss various issues raised when attempting to resolve the conflicting interests between a developer and tenant as they document a site plan that will govern their long-term relationship.
