When the CFO of a company first called me, his frustration was loud and clear. His in-house corporate lawyer had just resigned, and the outside law firm wasn't responsive enough. The company was facing a bottleneck of day-to-day business contracts, which was delaying their revenue realization.
As someone with over 20 years of experience as an in-house counsel, being unresponsive would have been a career-limiting move. I pride myself on making my clients feel like they are my only client, as if their company was big enough to have their own lawyer on staff. So, I immediately took up the challenge.
I always strive to respond within the same day, but at least within 1 business day, which proved to be a relief for the CFO. As someone who understands the value of time in business, I know how important it is to keep contracts moving.
If you are a CFO who's struggling with a pile of unapproved contracts, you don't have to go through it alone. Let's work together to clear the backlog and get the company moving forward.
