Our client was a dynamic Tech SME with a small head office function that had no legal expertise in their business. They were briefing external law firms to do their legal work but found that whilst they provided the technical expertise, they did not understand the commercial drivers of the business or provide any budget certainty.
LOD provided a General Counsel/Partner level lawyer to work closely with the key stakeholders of the company. Embedded in the company and with a deep understanding of the business, our lawyer was able to lead the negotiations of a significant acquisition crucial to the company’s growth strategy. A critical aspect of the assignment was to manage and oversee the output of the organisation’s current legal providers to ensure the deal was conducted in a timely and highly cost efficient manner.
Working onsite and directly with the client I was able to add real value to them and their stakeholders.
