Again, it was great having you as a guest speaker at our company meeting. I thought I’d share with you how your presentation directly impacted our business. Days before our meeting, I told one of my employees that we would not accept a client’s terms for working with us (a waiver of liability) and to walk away from the work the client wanted us to do. After your talk, I talked with this employee and learned that he had not spoken directly with the ultimate client/lawyer who was insisting on the waiver. I arranged for a call between me and the senior lawyer, heard his reasoning and developed a BATNA which allowed for us to take the work. The client was very appreciative and we’ll likely bill $100,000 or more for the work. Thanks for sparking the idea to re-engage the client, identify the issues below the water, and develop our BATNA.
