Does anyone have experience with Spotdraft or another contract template program? I’m working on formalizing and modernizing out template contracts and I’m curious if it’s worth exploring something like that to help cut down on back and forth and negotiation time.

You can use quickparts on Word for free. Who do you want negotiating? I would worry this would empower you GTM team.

I work primarily with a procurement team that does all the negotiation. The history has been that the legal team does the templates, and the procurement team works with business to procure. Legal gets brought in to negotiate sticky terms and review redlines. I’m working on trying to automate some of the negotiation, primarily things like indemnity, through developing some pre approved alternate positions. I’ll admit this is not my preferred contracting process, but since there is only one lawyer supporting this entire function, it’s what I’ve got. I also don’t know much about this software, but saw it was highly recommended in the ten things blog

I'd develop the playback before you worryvre software.

Additional Posts in In-House Counsel

I continuously have a problem with one of our business unit leaders wanting to have a more “direct” relationship with outside counsel on major litigations. This involves scheduling calls to discuss strategy, etc. when I’m not available. Our counsels are sympathetic, but it’s awkward to need to ask them not to take this person’s calls and/or to brief me after the fact. Anyone else dealt with a similar situation? How do you deal with these types of issues?

How do you style your signature block if you’re filing an answer for your company’s subsidiary? (Sub is a hold co and doesn’t have its own attorney)


I work for a mid-sized company (almost 500 employees) with a legal team of 3 and am curious about how our approach to contracts compares with others. Every single contract the company signs goes through legal review, and we always have revisions (we have specific terms we typically request). I’m talking every contract, down to the coffee vendor (not to minimize the significance of coffee). Is this normal? Sometimes it feels like a huge waste of time for low-risk concerns.

I am interviewing for an in-house role that I am really excited about, but they require 5 days in office.

I’ve been in an in-house role since the beginning of the year and just gave 2 weeks’ notice to leave for a much better paying and better titled position. The response has been very petty, to the point that I’ve been called unprofessional even after I asked the hiring attorney whether I could give longer notice at the current company’s request. Is this normal?
