Chair's Welcome

Dear Colleagues:

Welcome to the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s In-House Counsel Committee.  The committee is unique among professional organizations serving in-house counsel, as outside counsel also can be members of the committee.  This exceptional mix allows for greater sharing among and between in-house and outside counsel and affords both types of lawyers opportunities to encourage and develop mutually beneficial professional relationships.

Whether you are in-house counsel seeking to connect with other similarly-situated colleagues or outside counsel seeking to understand better and appreciate the business needs of in-house counsel, we think you’ll find that the PBA In-House Counsel Committee has something to offer you.  Continuing the collaborative spirit that the Committee has created through such past events as its statewide Inside-Outside Counsel Summits and regionally-focused Meet & Greets, we are currently creating a series of Counsel-To-Counsel Roundtables and other initiatives designed to address various needs and concerns of the counsel we serve.   

If you already are a member of the committee, thank you, and please let me know if there are any specific ways that the committee may be able to help add value to your PBA membership and to your practice.  If you are not yet a member of the committee, please consider joining us and getting involved.  It is only through the combined efforts of all the committee’s members — in-house and outside alike — that we all will be able to tap the committee’s true potential.
