One of the greatest assets a lawyer can bring to a corporate environment is finding a way to bring people together in the spirit of negotiated compromise as opposed to driving them apart resulting in litigation.
The best corporate transaction lawyers know that a business works best when it is moving forward unimpeded by a quagmire of legal issues. Although some legal fights are inevitable, a lawyer is generally at their best when they are able to protect the interests of a business and still keep the forward momentum going.
These types of lawyers are extremely valuable and can add value by the thoroughness of their work from preparing contracts for large transactions, to making sure regulatory paperwork is complete and submitted before their deadline.
In a sense, the best corporate transaction lawyers can be the ones who never see the inside of a courtroom because their best work is done researching, advising, negotiating and prepping documents for company executives.
However, sometimes when legal conflicts are unavoidable, the best lawyers will still do much of their work behind the scenes, doing research and exchanging documents and information with opposing counsel to try and bring disputes to a resolution as quickly and inexpensively as possible.
About 90 percent of all lawsuits are settled before going to trial, but when all else fails, a great corporate transaction lawyer must also be ready to defend the interests of a client with energy and vigor, employing every resource available to ensure a positive outcome. In a sense, this is also helping the company to move forward under the best possible conditions, continuing to add value under all circumstances.
