Mature companies and their corporate legal departments face unique challenges not shared by startups, such as public investor pressure to meet quarterly revenue goals.
But they also face more complexity and scalability:
- The complexity comes in multiples – multiple product lines, multiple stock-keeping units (SKU’s), multiple groups within the company, and of course widespread facilities often spanning continents and time zones.
- Further, large and mature companies must scale their operations properly to remain competitive. They often address these challenges by innovation that touches their internal processes, as well as their end products and services. I saw and dealt with all these types of issues when I worked as Assistant General Counsel of Intuit, an S&P 500 technology company.
If you need to outsource particular deals, product launches, or other projects to a corporate counsel with years of in-house experience, contact me.
