A Publishing Partnership
John P. Langan teams with National Grid's General Counsel Colin Owyang.
Managing Partner John P. Langan recently partnered with National Grid General Counsel Colin Owyang, whose company is a client of Hiscock & Barclay, to co-author a detailed and insightful chapter on “Law Firm Staffing” for the book Successful Partnering Between Inside and Outside Counsel. The book is published jointly by Thomson Reuters Westlaw and the Association of Corporate Counsel. The publication discusses the issues that general counsel attorneys and their law firm partners often come across while working together, and offer realistic solutions. The collaboration provided an excellent opportunity for Hiscock & Barclay to work side-by-side with a longtime client while sharing ideas and thoughts about the legal industry today.
