"Leo has been a great help to me in my role of Commercial Manager as he applied legal analyses to the facts and navigated the complex scenarios and boiled them down to some clear and graspable legal and factual issues, and he always gave solutions. Specifically in the area of contract drafting, Leo made the contracts flow more smoothly conceptually and standardized the contract templates with clauses critical to an MNC such as IP, compliance and risk control, and we thought out solutions for using them with state-owned customers. Leo has really added value to our business in many ways."
