Effective management of legal services means identifying legal risks responsibly and sensibly, and allocating resources where they can be used most effectively. This means approaching risk with common sense and not with a fly-swatter, and it means prioritizing. Business growth requires the effective development of constructive relationships – with employees, with stakeholders, with suppliers, with customers. Your lawyer needs to be aligned with that approach and needs to help you build. You and your legal advisor need to be able to speak the same language, in terms of both the technology itself and the business enviroment in which it exists.
