The Challenge

Alistair Houghton, General Counsel and sole in-house lawyer at Curve, faced a multifaceted workload that encompassed contract review, regulatory assessments, and staying updated on legal changes. As the sole legal expert, Alistair recognized his potential to contribute strategically beyond legal matters. However, he encountered unanticipated hurdles, such as adapting to new systems like Slack, G-Suite, Jira, and Airtable, and navigating a less structured work culture compared to his previous environments.

Juggling legal responsibilities with strategic contributions was challenging for Alistair as he navigated various tasks and learned to work within a dynamic environment at Curve.

The Outcome

Thanks to TLB's implementation of the Legal Front Door, Curve was able to reduce contract review turnaround time by 50%, allowing Alistair to focus on more strategic tasks and providing the business with faster access to legal support. The introduction of a Legal Front Door also provided stakeholders with a central database of contracts, ensuring they were aware of what contracts the company had entered into and their annual spend.
