Panning for Gold: Lessons from Lawyers on the Anatomy of Transactions, Legal Matters, and the Lawyer


Domain: Business of Law

So much time and effort is spent trying to apply business concepts and methodologies to the activities, risk profiles and idiosyncrasies of legal work. However, aside from the few individuals who have crossed the line from being a practicing lawyer to the business side of their organizations, there is not a significant level of practical understanding of what is happening on the front lines of a M&A transaction or a class action litigation case, and what is going through the mind of the lawyer when asked to forecast, measure and optimize execution. These business-minded lawyers from both litigation and transactional practices, some of whom have “crossed the line” to the business side of their firms, will help to bridge that gap, illuminating aspects of how lawyers view their work, and how to productively leverage their legal expertise and translate it into viable and successful pricing and project management methodologies.
