MARTINDALE-Hubbell, best known for its comprehensive attorney directories, has launched a new program targeted at high-level corporate counsel.

The Counsel to Counsel panels will be held in seven major metropolitan areas, and will address various issues around the delivery of corporate legal services, including "how the integration of new technologies and services is changing the role of in-house counsel," reports CEO John Lawler. The invitation-only event will bring together about 20 counsel for each off-the-record discussion.

A June session on "Harnessing Your Company's Technology Resources to Increase Efficiency" will be held in Los Angeles; "Launching New Technologies and Services: The Changing Role of Legal Counsel" is planned for Atlanta in November.
