As we wrap up our February issue (in late December), I’ve been thinking about our reporting plans for the next year. Here are a few subjects that we’d like to devote more space and attention to, and we welcome your help. IN-HOUSE ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE In November I attended the West Coast General Counsel conference, which is produced by Corporate Counsel‘s parent company, ALM. One topic that piqued the attendees’ interest was the erosion of this privilege. We’d like to look more closely at the subject of in-house attorney-client privilege in the coming months. If you have a story you’d like to share, or thoughts about how your company is grappling with this issue, please let me know. OUTSIDE COUNSEL HIRING AND FIRING Every year when we conduct our “Who Represents America’s Biggest Companies” survey (November 2004), I’m surprised that more Fortune 250 businesses don’t participate. Shining light on which outside counsel companies use, and why they hire or fire a firm, only adds more transparency to this mysterious process. If your business has recently retained a new firm or stopped using an old one, or if you’re in the process of formally winnowing your outside counsel ranks, we’d like to hear about it. SHORTLIST We’re planning on publishing another “Shortlist” for our April 2005 issue. In 2002, we asked for nominations for associate or deputy GCs with the potential to become GC of a Fortune 500 company within the next five years. In the three years since we published that issue, five of the ten in-house lawyers we picked have become general counsel. However, writing about these unsung attorneys and their accomplishments doesn’t have to happen every three years. If a lawyer in your department, or yes, you yourself, has done something extraordinary, let us know. Really, it’s okay to gush. NONPROFIT AND GOVERNMENT LAWYERS In late 2004 Corporate Counsel increased its circulation to 43,000 readers. While the majority of our readers are in-house counsel, many of these new readers are lawyers at nonprofits and government agencies. Our February 2005 cover story, “With Charity for All?” looks at the corporate governance reforms GCs at nonprofits have made in the last two years (since Sarbanes-Oxley shook up the public sector). We’d like to devote more of our resources to reporting about the legal issues affecting these groups, and we’d appreciate your ideas. Please e-mail me at [email protected].
