Corporate lawyer practicing in St. Louis. Never been to court and handle only business transactions. My clients are companies of all sizes and business people. I'm a pretty serious guy but like to have fun, so I'm looking for an avatar on the light side.
Here's a biographical section from theContractsGuy blog:
My professional passion has been drafting, reviewing, and negotiating contracts since a secondment in the legal department of a Fortune 500 company early in my legal career exposed me to business people and their day-to-day business deals.
Working with contracts is the closest a business lawyer in private practice comes to the operational life of a company. Other areas of corporate practice expose us to the business affairs of our clients, but helping business folks think through the details and implications of their business arrangements by applying legal analysis brings the transactional lawyer closer to "business" than anything else I've experienced. I often think of the issues that companies and their corporate attorneys deal with as being on a continuum, with legal issues on one end and business issues on the other. While helping a client with a contract, I am at the intersection of business and legal issues, dealing in legal concepts and advice, but informed by and immersed in business issues. I find that intellectually stimulating and satisfying.
