"Christian was great at taking lead on drafting and negotiating our commercial contracts with customers as well as vendors/suppliers. He also provided valuable advice on how to make our contracting cycle more efficient and other improvements to our various legal templates and internal policies."
"Christian helped our start-up stand up a new legal function from ground up with templates, policies, procedures, etc. He really took the time to understand our business and right-sized an approach to building a legal function that can scale with our growth. His personal experience with founding a start-up and also his experience as a GC for larger companies definitely helped."
