At ACC Annual Meeting, Counsel Discuss Criteria For Evaluating Law Firms -
The Posse List
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. plans to add evaluation of a law firm’s flextime policies to its list of criteria for evaluating outside firms, according to a panelist at the ACC annual meeting in Boston.
Joseph West, associate general counsel at Wal-Mart, said the company plans to add flextime policies to its current list of law firm measures: cost-effectiveness, performance and diversity.
West was one of eight panelists on an Oct. 20 panel covering how in-house counsel departments can get more value from the law firms they work with: “50 Ways and Counting to Drive Value into Law Firm Relationships.”
