Paralegal - Contract Management and Entity Formation

I have over 30 years of experience as a corporate paralegal from the top firms in Chicago, and specialize in two areas: (1) Contract management and negotiation, including contract analysis, drafting of MSAs, employment contracts, construction contracts, website terms of use, negotiating on key terms, preparing addendums, and managing document execution; and (2) corporate entity formations in all 50 states, including LLCs, C-Corps, and S-Corps, and all compliance requirements such as drafting operating agreements, resolutions, bylaws, etc. A study has found that "for 42% of enterprises, the top driver for improvements in the management of contracts is the pressure to better assess and mitigate risks" and additionally, "nearly 65% of enterprises report that contract lifecycle management (CLM) has limited its exposure to financial and legal risk." I assist my clients with setting non-negotiable contract clauses and parameters for negotiations on additional terms. It's a difficult process to arrive at the decision to pass on a project due to contract constraints, but most companies have had the bad experience of signing a poorly written contract and being on the losing end. My contract management experience spans many industries, including subcontracts in the construction industry, architecture field, manufacturing, SaaS, healthcare, influencer, service, and creative, which also includes AIA contracts. I have been exposed to all sides of contract review and negotiation. I am able to utilize my negotiation and communication skills to bring parties together to agree on a mutually protective and beneficial contract. I am well-versed in a wide range of software applications. I am professional, honest, and maintain confidentiality at all times. My English grammar, vocabulary, spelling, and punctuation skills are impeccable. I am available during core business hours as well as outside core hours, and responsive to emergencies and tight deadlines. Complex document prep/redlining/version control Complex financial documentation including IPO offering statements Contracts (including AIA contracts) Estate planning documentation Proposals Bylaws/Articles of Incorporation Development of training/procedure manuals I have keen interpersonal skills -- such as conflict resolution, communication, problem solving, and time management -- which enables me to be an effective participant in any situation. I am a deft problem solver and will always find a solution to any problem a client is facing. Also, I have traveled extensively both internationally and domestically, which developed my cultural and political awareness and enables me to work more effectively with diverse groups. Teamwork, communication, integrity, and excellence comprise the foundation of my services. Teamwork is essential and I will assist you with any task that advances your strategic goals. I pride myself on fostering a collaborative environment that results in higher productivity and success for my clients. Communication is also essential and I will always keep you informed of the status of a project. I will never compromise my integrity and will always maintain the confidentiality of my clients and their business. Trust is essential between both parties and clear communication and teamwork maintains that trust. Following these three tenets guarantees excellence in both product quality and service. My priority is your success! No task is too small or too complex, and I will provide efficient and effective assistance with any project you have. I will be happy to meet with you to learn about you and your company.
