I want to interrupt a week of cost control and deflating hourly rates with a Wired GC exclusive.
A formerly encrypted law firm training video has been leaked to the Wired GC. It was allegedly used by a leading AmLaw 200 law firm to prepare for the finals of a major convergence RFP undertaken by an international Fortune 100 conglomerate.
When you see it in a single senior partner formation, it’s something. Just picture the effect when you have the entire seven person engagement team working together. Beyond mere collaboration, it’s a portent of project and process nirvana!
My sources tell me that this closing technique proved to be decisive. So much so that the GC who made the call used a version of this routine when explaining legal department value to his CEO and CFO in the context of a surprise 10% budget overrun.
So here it is. Please share this only with people you trust.
(Here is the link if you can’t see the video above).
Two other things I heard: if you’re getting objections, Double Dream Hands!; at the end, Freestyle!
