"I worked with Tom for a number of years when we both were working for a large corporation. Tom was the legal resource for our Sourcing team. He advised us not only regarding U.S. agreements/issues, but also for global agreements. He was the main architect of a select supplier agreement that we used for all of our sourcing agreements. One of Tom’s attributes was that he was very sensitive to our meeting our sourcing needs while protecting the company’s legal interests. He worked hard to understand our needs and then incorporate those into our many agreements. He always maintained a positive attitude and responded to requests in a timely manner. He certainly contributed to the success of our department in the formative years of that Sourcing team. Laurie Chamberlin, former Senior Sourcing Manager at Cargill Global Procurement"

"April 2, 2018 Recommendation Tom Lindberg If you are in need for a practical and strategic lawyer who thinks like an owner, I strongly recommend engaging with Tom. As the president of a global business at Cargill I worked closely with Tom as our chief in house legal advisor. Our business unit leadership team quickly learned to appreciate Tom’s assessment of the legal issues we faced. Tom’s keen ability to evaluate the situations and his holistic solutions both anticipated and minimized our risks. His insights brought real economic value to our business. As with any great partner, Tom also had the courage to stand firm on critical issues when his legal advice was not convenient to our plans. Tom connected extremely well with our entire team and he earned our trust that he had our best interests in mind. While Tom had other corporate and legal responsibilities in addition to his work with our business unit he was always available to meet our needs. I am an advocate of Tom and enthusiastically endorse him for any organization that values professional legal leadership. Tom brings more than contract and legal advice. He is strategic and appreciates the commercial realities of doing business. His extensive and broad business and legal background make him a valuable asset to have on your team. Doug Eden, former Cargill Malt Business Unit President"
