In the final part of this series with Clifford Chance Dubai, Jack (Partner at Clifford Chance) is joined by Vandana Rupani (Head of Legal, Pyypl) and Donya Fredj (Senior Legal Counsel at G42) to ask “How can in-house legal teams and private practice work together?”

The panel focuses on moving beyond transactional interactions to building more connected relationships. Donya and Vandy both express a need for external legal resources that understand their particular businesses and give tailored advice.

With the rise in Alternative Legal Service Providers (ALSPs), the panel discusses how law firms need to reconsider how they deliver legal services in a more competitive way. For Vandy, this includes creative fee structures which are more appropriate for the budgets of tech start-ups.
