NAMWOLF FIRMS ARE ENJOYING THE BENEFITS OF THE NEWLY CREATED PRACTICE AREA COMMITTEES (“PACs”)
By Linda G. Burwell,
National Employment Counsel, PLLC
After a long thorough review, NAMWOLF voted at the beginning of 2014, to completely revamp and reorganize its Committee Structure into Practice Area Committees (“PACs”) in order to help steer its branding and growth and member firms’ ROI.
PACs are formed based upon the substantive area of law practiced. The Board has already approved seven PACs (IP, Transactional, Labor & Employment, Insurance, Trials, White Collar Defense and Internal Investigations, and Products Liability) and will continue to add PACs as the need arises.
NAMWOLF is very excited about this new structure and is already seeing its benefits. These PACs are the vehicles through which firms are getting more business from companies and from other member firms. They are helping us better identify attorneys with the expertise in the area(s) needed by in-house counsel and are increasing the opportunities for member firms to interact with each other.
