Acquisition Professionals and In-house Attorneys are a Team

Successful teams often evidence nimbleness among their members. In an industry such as real estate, where rapid reaction to market opportunities can distinguish those who prevail from those who do not, this may be even more significant. Virtually every corporate law department, though, works through teams.

Sometimes the teams consist solely of in-house personnel, but more often they include individuals from other organizations also, such as law firms and other providers of law-related service. Accordingly, time spent by the law department to nurture the feeling of teamwork within its representative groups should serve it well over the long term.
