Business Lawyer Speaker for Corporate Events, Expert for Panel Discussions, Podcast Guest

Brian Elliott has extensive experience as an in-house general counsel, business litigator, and technology and intellectual property lawyer as is available to be a guest speaker at a company retreats, corporate training, group and association events as well as podcasts.

Business Lawyer as a Business Growth Catalyst

Brian has spent 20 years as a business and technology attorney in startup companies and Fortune 100 organizations. He understands from an inside perspective how effective legal representation can be a catalyst for business growth. While most businesses see legal expense as a necessary (or sometimes unnecessary evil) few businesses embrace qualified legal representatives as a driver for their business. Brian believes this approach is shortsighted and is happy to share with audiences his experience in propelling business growth from the legal function within a corporation.

Brian challenges large firms and in-house general counsel lawyers to rethink how they approach providing legal services. The concept of positioning the business lawyer or corporate legal department as a “Growth Center” is one of the things he teaches that transforms the traditional business-legal relationship and provides the pathway for ethical growth oriented lawyering equating to more success for all.
