Architecture of Deals: Strategies for Transactional Lawyering offers a novel set of tools – a framework of private orderings – to help transactional lawyers accelerate the development of key skills, such as:

 

• problem-solving techniques in complex transactional environments;

• commercial acumen and strategic-thinking skills;

• deal design structures and strategies; and

• analytical mindset and approach to legal and commercial problems.

 

A transactional lawyer can use the mental models and strategies in the framework to play a more active role in crafting deals and transactions, and transform from a mere legal expert into a trusted adviser.

 

The framework also offers educators and learning professionals a novel, interdisciplinary approach to redefining and reimagining legal education and training. At a time of disproportionate focus on technological innovation in the legal industry, Architecture of Deals: Strategies for Transactional Lawyering is a groundbreaking attempt to drive talent development innovation in what remains a human capital industry.
