The Challenge

As the business charged ahead with ambitious growth, it grappled with a hefty load of legal tasks, resulting in a mountain of contracts to handle. While rapid expansion was in full swing, there was a looming concern that the negotiation of contracts might lack the desired uniformity. The situation became even trickier as the team operated at a fast clip, making knowledge-sharing a bit of a puzzle. Negotiating agreements, especially when essential preferences hadn't been documented, ended up consuming precious time that could otherwise have been directed towards the company's thriving growth trajectory.

Concerns emerged about inconsistent contract negotiation, compounded by fast-paced operations and undocumented preferences, consuming valuable time.

The Outcome

Faster negotiations, a consistent contractual landscape and a happy business.

The most valuable commodity to any lawyer is time, and the multi-disciplined team at TLB helped us identify the time we were spending inefficiently and provided us with smart and accessible solutions to give that time back to us. Like most legal functions, our working methods haven't evolved at the same pace as the business we support, so our work with The Law Boutique has been a timely exercise in reconfiguring how we manage workflow, how we negotiate contracts consistently, and how we store and share our knowledge.
