Why business lawyers say no

Do you think of your legal department as “The Department of No?” Read Why Business Lawyers Say No and Why It’s Not Necessarily A Bad Thing (December 2011, Alberta Venture), the sister piece to the December 2011 Legal Eagles, The Pros and Cons of In-House Counsel (Alberta Venture).

Featuring Anita Dusevic Oliva, senior legal counsel and corporate secretary with Inter Pipeline Fund, and Adam Pekarsky, Founding principal of legal recruiting/consulting firm Pekarsky Stein.

Best line from the piece:

“For God’s sake, don’t show this to the lawyers, they’ll only say no.”
