The most important indication of success to me is earning new business from an existing client. It’s the same standard I aspired to as a General Counsel, and includes delivering world class legal services on time and on budget. My corporate and transactional practices include representing companies and investors in a variety of industries in financings, mergers and acquisitions and the complete range of technology-based transactions. I advise executives and boards on governance matters and I help clients establish and implement cost-effective corporate compliance programs. As General Counsel of Flextronics, I learned about continuous improvement as a core operating concept. The principle is now second-nature to me, and I am constantly looking for opportunities to increase efficiency, make adjustments based on feedback, and measure results – although my family and friends are still waiting to see me apply this discipline to my cooking.
