We heard this week at the Georgetown Law Firm Evolution symposium that there’s a general expectation from in-house lawyers that private firms should lead the charge to collaborate and come up with creative solutions.

Do you wait for client demand, or are you the one to first propose changes?
Share examples—from fee arrangements to increased efficiencies you've put in place—in the comments.
