The end-of-year deal-closing season has just come to a close. So I’ve been sending a lot of emails that I don’t want to screw up.

Is Axiom a game-changer? I thoroughly enjoyed reading the recent piece on Adam Smith, Esq. about an interview with Mark Harris, Axiom’s CEO and founder. The law firm places its lawyers on temporary assignment inside corporate law offices. With a focus on working better and smarter, it’s grown rapidly in recent years.

When Axiom owns the solution, then we lead the solutions design, working with our clients to apply process innovation, technology, and tools to improve both risk mitigation and cost. Throughout, the intent is for Axiom to assume the burden of creating efficiencies, because we have the benefit of scale and the ability to apply best practices codified across experience with multiple client engagements.

Phase 2 sounds really exciting. Makes me wonder about Phase 3.
