“Even high-end law firms dont have much advice they can offer a competent inhouse lawyer or GC on how to run their contract processes. But Radiant Law is much more than a law firm and Alex is much more than a lawyer. Read this book for insightful, well grounded, incremental, and practical advice on how to solve the Contracting Problem.” Martin Clausen, former General Counsel of Maersk Line and Managing Director of Syngrato

“In my work with general counsel globally, they fall into two categories when thinking about contracts and contract management where do I begin? or jumping too quickly to fix a small part of the problem. Sign Here provides a comprehensive and holistic view of how to assess needs and success in managing and closing contracts, faster. It provides much discipline and practical insight in a field that is crowded with failed attempts.” Duc V. Trang, Managing Director at Major, Lindsey & Africa, former General Counsel and author of Architecture of Deals: Strategies for Transactional Lawyering
In my experience, most attorneys believe that contracting is broken. Unfortunately, they also believe that there is no way to fix it (a comfortable though not helpful posture). Alex’s new book colorfully validates the first belief and systematically dismantles the second. This is a must read for anyone who is serious about contracting. Michael Naughton Vice President xMentium, previously Director of Legal Service Innovation at Cisco
“So much of the effort to fix broken contracting, adds complexity and cost without addressing the real fundamental issues. Alex Hamilton does it differently, going to the core of the problem and offering real-life solutions that are proven to work. Sign Here is a no-nonsense, hype-free, practical, relationships-first and thankfully brief guide on how to do it all – templates, process, negotiations, tech, data – better.”- Denis Potemkin, head of Innovation at LexSolutions and founder of Majoto
