Inspired by Elliott Hurwitt in Corp. Counsel, Vol. 16, May 2009 at 102, who spoofed PR releases by technology vendors, here is my similar approach for general counsel who want to praise their group. When words fail you, don’t fail to use these crunchy words. Simply mix-and-match to fill in the blanks of this sentence:
“As chief legal officer, I am proud that MegaBigCo has a [adjective] Law Department committed to [noun] and devoted to [verb].”
Lean and mean,
Stewarding corporate resources,
Innovating our practice,
Partnering with key firms.
